    Subst Drives

    If I use "subst" through startup to map a drive, is there a command that would then give me the actual drive path if I want it?

    If I map, say c:winntsystem32 to "S:", then, could I then get the true path to a file instead of "s:" if I accessed the file via the substed drive?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Do you mean a 'Command Prompt' command?

    If so, I can't help, but you can do it with VB:
    192689 - HOWTO: Get UNC Path From a Mapped Network Share's Drive Letter

    ...or to quickly find the odd one, you could create a hyperlink (in say Word or Excel) to a file on the mapped drive. Editing the hyperlink tends to show the full path.
