Hi Kev,kev1952 said:When you perform a file download (I assume that's what you are talking about) you can choose whatever destination your heart desires. Different browsers handle it in different ways - for IE you get a dialogue box come up asking you where you want to save the file. In Firefox (heaps better than IE anyway ) you go into "options" and set whatever directory (and drive) you want to use.
If you are talking about P2P software then the destination is also set in preferences of whatever P2P software you are using.
Hi DefConDelta,DefConDelta said:Here's another way:
The subst command allows the substitution of a drive letter for a local drive path. For example, to map the drive C:\Documents and Settings\Quinn\My Documents to the drive Q: use the following command:
subst Q: "C:\Documents and Settings\Quinn\My Documents"
Once run, Q: should appear in the My Computer listing as a drive. Referencing a file in Q:\ will actually reference the file in the full path substituted above.
