I've been Googling and messing around for the past two hours or so. And looked some time ago as well, without any succes in both cases. The issue is simple, I wish to mount a UNC path as a local harddrive. It could be by mounting it as network disk first, that's not a problem. The following things can already be scrapped: -net use -subst -masterdisk (uses subst in the code) -MountVD (same issue) -DFS -NTFS junctions -starwind/starport -Winbolic -Moving around things from my network places I did find one, though not very useful, workaround. I can use tools like Truecrypt/pgp to create a virtual drive on a network share. So basically some tool that acts in a similar way in between would be nice. So far it doesn't seem to exist though. However, considering there are good working virtual optical drives including burning support, virtual floppies, virtual tapedrives and virtual everythings and of course the virtual harddrive programs like Truecrypt/pgp create I'm pretty sure it's not a technical impossibility.
