    I have hyper v machines hosted locally on my computer. I want to share a folder between the hyper v machines and my local machine. I had this down before by creating a shared drive with a subst command but now I cannot remember how to do this.

    The correct command to connect a drive letter to a shared drive is:
    NET USE N: \\servername\sharename

    Subst (or substitute) is a non-persistent command for creating a temp. drive letter to a local drive and path not a network location.
