New way of resource mapping

This tip was submitted to the SearchWin2000.com tip exchange by member Sergey Tsygankov. Please let other users know how useful it is by rating it below.

You can map network resources using PUSHD command instead of NET USE.

Just as if a network path is specified, PUSHD will create a temporary drive letter that points to that specified network resource, and then change the current drive and directory, using the newly defined drive letter. Temporary drive letters are allocated from Z: on down, using the first unused drive letter found.

Loopback command is POPD; the POPD command will delete any temporary drive letter created by PUSHD when you POPD that drive off the pushed directory stack.
