Dear All,

Anybody know how to make "Net use" work in Ms Windows XP repair consolve in order to share file over LAN?

i tried: net use \\servername /USER:Domain-name/user
after providing the pwd, it said " The System cannot find the file or directory specified."

I, think, i due to it is not in the Network environment .

Any idea would be appreciating.

You can't do that with the Recovery Console. The RC is very limited in it's use.

Edit: We'll I was wrong about that. You can use that command to map a network share to a drive letter. I've never used it. Perhaps someone else will know more about it.

Here's the syntax:
Net use

Connects a network share to a drive letter. The net use command with the parameters listed below is only available when you are using the Recovery Console. The net use command with different parameters is available from the command prompt.


net use [\\ComputerName\ShareName [/user:[DomainName\]UserName] password] | [drive letter:] [/d]



Specifies the name of the server and the shared resource. If ComputerName contains blank characters, enclose the entire computer name from the double backslash (\\) to the end of the computer name in quotation marks. The computer name can be from 1 to 15 characters long.


Specifies the user name with which the connection is made.


Domain-name to use when validating the credentials for the User.


Specifies the user name with which to log on.


Specifies the password needed to access the shared resource. Leave blank to produce a prompt for the password. The password is not displayed when you type it at the password prompt.


Indicates that this connection is to be disconnected.

It will give you a complete Win32 environment with network support, a graphical user interface (800x600) and FAT/NTFS/CDFS filesystem support. Very handy for burn-in testing systems with no OS, rescuing files to a network share, virus scan and so on.
This will replace any Dos bootdisk in no time!

I use this gem a lot. It's a very useful tool. It's free. :)
