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. Open the Command Prompt:

 

 

        2A. Open the Start menu.

 

 

        2B. Type the letters CMD in the text field.

 

 

        2C. Select the Command Prompt entry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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\).
