Hi,
Could any one help me out on this.
I've a shared network resource which needs to be mounted to a folder in my local machine.For instance the path \\hostname\ntwrkfolder needs to be mounted to my local machine.
Are there any mount commands in Windows.I did surf through the internet but didn't find any.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Triji

Right click My Computer and select Map network drive
Select a drive letter you wish to use and enter in the network path
Click the Finish button

It will now show up in My Computer as a mounted drive.

Hi,
Thanks for your suggestion.I had tried this earlier and it seems to work.I need to invoke applications installed in the shared path,by mapping the network drive the applications take so much time to startup and its very slow.

Are there any other alternatives for a faster access?

Thanks again,
Triji
