Download Virtual Drives Manager, to turn a folder into a disk
We need sometimes to create a virtual drive that is pointing to an existing folder on a local drive. There are some annoying applications that insist to be installed on a specific drive or on a root of a drive, other times we just want to logically divide a hard disk for different users, or to create a quick access to a long path directly from My Computer, or for security reasons, etc.
Virtual Drives Manager is a free program that will let you create a Simbolic link (MS-DOS Device name) to a folder and present it as drive. Drives that are created with Virtual Drives Manager will stay even efter you will restart your system, and you can quickly remove them using the same utility.
Virtual Drives Manager is a portable application; there is no install process, just unzip to any folder and run it. To create a new drive: – Select a drive letter from the available drop down list – Browse and select a folder that the drive will point to. – Press the “Create Drive” button.
To remove a virtual drive, from within Virtual Drives Manager select a drive from the list and press the “Remove Drive” button. Removing a virtual drive will not effect any data, it will just remove the symbolic link.
You can also create a virtual drive from a folder on a removable media like a CD or DVD; the new drive will appear as a new removable drive. The program works also on Windows 7.
