How to create a virtual drive (Windows NT, 2000 and XP)

Follow the instructions below to create a virtual drive for Windows NT, 2000 and XP:

A file has to be placed in the “START” menu which will execute itself when the computer is switched on. To do so, carry out the following steps:

  • Create a new folder in “C:”, give it a name, “DRIVEW”, for example.
  • Open the Windows Notepad.
  • Type: SUBSTespacio en blancoW:espacio en blancoC:\DRIVEW

espacio en blancorepresents a single space

W is the name of the virtual drive that is going to be created. It does not have to receive the name given in this example, simply choose a letter that does not coincide with any assigned to a hard drive.

DRIVEW is the name given to the folder that was created in the “C:” drive. If you provided a different name, type that name instead.

  • Save the file in the directory indicated below, assigning it any name you wish but with extension “BAT”. For example: “VIRTDRIVEW.BAT”

    • For Windows NT save it at C:\WINDOWS\Start menu\Programs\Start.
    • For Windows 2000 and XP, save it at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start menu\Programs\Start.
  • Restart the computer so the system can recognise the virtual drive. You now have a new virtual drive.
