Local Mapped Drives


J

JDP@Work

I was wondering if there is a way to maintain a local drive mapping when not
connected to a LAN.

I spend most of my time connected to a LAN

I have a local mapped drive E:\ which is my C:\App directory.

This is consistant to my development environment of mostly desktops & servers.

My very old laptop (still stable, but slow P166 Toshiba Satellite) OS is win98
and a subst command to alias my C:\Apps folder as E:\, hence no problem.

My old laptop (piece of poop Micron) OS Win2K, had a partition similar to my LAN
desktops, hence no problem.

My new laptop (Fujitsu LifeBook) OS WinXPro, mapping C:\Apps as E:\ works fine
while connected to any LAN, however it fails when I startup not connected to a
LAN and I cannot map the drive when not connected to a LAN.

I have many of my client's applications configured to use this E:\ path
including many registry entries, it's not hard to save the respective reg hacks,
but it's a real pain, so.....

I was wondering if there is a way to at least maintain the mapping when not
connected to a LAN.

TIA
