There are two computers PC1, PC2, there is a fold named: D:\Soft in PC1, and I want to use just one copy of soft.

so I used psubst to create a virtual driver D: in PC2 like below, and it works very well until I restart the PC2, the problem is that if I restart the PC2, the virtual driver D: will disappear.

psubst D: \PC1\D$\soft /P

any help?

I don't know that command, I always used "net use":

net use d: \\pc1\d$\soft  /persistent:yes

After reboot the drive must still exist, but connection might not be done unless you try open it and enter password manually. This may need to be done every boot.
