This is a small tool which allows you to associate the most accessed directories with virtual drives. It uses the same API like console “subst” utility, but makes it easier to create and remove virtual drives from a convenient and user friendly graphical interface.
Generally, a virtual drive is just a symbolic link in the Local MS-DOS Device namespace. It is one more of Windows features being added for backward compatibility with old programs. So virtual drives are objects of the operating system, and Visual Subst just can create, enumerate and delete these objects. All local MS-DOS device names are removed when the user is logging off. To handle this issue, Visual Subst saves the list of virtual drives into an INI-file and can load them the next time.
This program is free and runs only on Windows 2000/XP and newer operating systems.
