Windows Command Line Alternative Function: Mapping a Letter Drive

These steps will show you how to map a letter drive to your office's LandFX folder using the alternative Command Line function.

In most cases, you can just follow our simpler steps to map a letter drive.

 

1. Locate the folder you want to assign to a letter drive. If you followed Step 3 above, you'll be mapping the LandFX folder in your shared online folder on Dropbox, SugarSync, Carbonite, etc.

 

For example, If your LandFX folder is in a folder on Dropbox named C:\Users\Your_Name\Dropbox\LandFX\, you would use that location.

 

 

2. Follow our steps to open the Windows Command Prompt.

 

 

 

3. Now type the following at the Command prompt and press Enter:

 

 

net use L: "\\localhost\c$\***folder location***" /persistent:yes

(where ***folder location*** denotes the folder location of your LandFX folder in your shared online location found in Step 1 above, such as Users\Your_Name\Dropbox\LandFX\.

 

In our example, you would type

net use L: "\\localhost\c$\Users\Your_Name\Dropbox\LandFX" /persistent:yes

 

Having issues running this command? You can also try the following method:

 

• Follow our steps to share the LandFX folder on your network.

 

• Then type the following at the Command prompt and press Enter:

net use L: "\\***computer name***\***folder location***"  /persistent:yes

(where ***computer name**** denotes the actual name of your computer and ***folder location*** denotes the location after the C:\ found in Step 1 above, such as Users\Your_Name\Dropbox\LandFX\).
