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

    let me quote this SO comment: Imagine you google for a question, and the first search result that comes up is a StackOverflow post for exactly the question you need. So you click on it, read the answer... and what does it say? “Just google for it!”
