Is theer a way to mount a local path with a user friend name (similar to a device name). For eg, mount 'D:/Users/Rahul' folder as 'Rahul'.


You cannot make it a devicename, but you can use the subst command to make it a single letter drive name.

this command in command prompt will make a new drive letter U: pointing to your folder

subst U: d:\Users\Rahul

You may use environment variables if this suits your needs

Update: See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Environment_variable for examples on how to create environment variables
