I've mounted a drive as a folder, mapped a folder as a drive, and mapped one fold on one drive to a different folder on the same drive, but I have not been able to get a folder on one drive to map to a folder on a different drive.

I am running 64-bit Windows 8.

I tried the Junction tool, and the new MKLink command introduced in Windows 7. They don't appear to allow mapping between drives. Wondering if maybe combining a few techniques will produce the desired result.

I don't have a Windows 8 machine to test this, but it works in Windows 7.

If I have a folder on drive E: called MP3, I can create a directory junction (C:\Music) like this:

mklink /j "C:\Music" "E:\MP3"

Browsing to C:\Music in Windows Explorer shows me what is in E:\MP3.

Yes, that did it. I had a security issue on the target folder which was causing me grief. – Jim McKeeth May 1 '12 at 0:14
