I created a virtual drive using "SUBST" command . But i can not delete now .

Can anybody tell me how can I delete this virtual drive.


If using the command SUBST X: /D does not work then try rem or delete the occurrence of the SUBST command in the autoexec.bat file & reboot.

If using Windows 7, try to open your prompt window as Administrator and then run the SUBST X: /D normally
