SUBST drive1: /D

Display names of the virtual drives in effect:



This command creates a virtual drive Z for the path d:\halim:

SUBST Z: d:\halim

Now, instead of typing the full path, you can reach this directory by typing the letter of the virtual drive, followed by a colon, as in:


This example works only if you have included the line LASTDRIVE=Z in your CONFIG.SYS file to define Z as the highest letter that the operating system recognizes as a disk drive. For more information, see the LASTDRIVE command.
