Creating Virtual Drives in command window

Using the subst-executable it's possible to substitute folders on your computer with drive letters [Virtual Drives]. You can use the drive letter in commands as if it were a physical drive. I'm still looking how to rename the newly created drive. By default the new drive is called "Data" ...

It can be very handy if you have folders that are deeply "nested". Another reason to use this "tool" is to get to the physical files in the Global Assembly Cache [see post of Jeff Key]. That's a nice bonus!
