I have a mapped directory in my D drive called “Inetpub”. I point it to various folders depending which version of my website I am testing. How do I quickly check which folder I am in when I browse to “D:\Inetpub”?

I have seen other answers for revealing the path for a network drive, but this is different. I need to know if I’m mapped to D:\MyWebsite\QA or D:\MyWebsite\OldVersion3_2, etc.

  • how did you map the dir? mklink? you can view them in the command line with `dir /AL /S c:` (will list all the symlinks on C:) or in a gui see here: windows7themes.net/en-us/… – Frank Thomas Jul 16 '14 at 13:58
  • Yeah, I used mklink. Thanks @FrankThomas . Add your comment as an answer, and I'll accept it. – WEFX Jul 16 '14 at 14:32

Per @FrankThomas, here is the way to get the paths via command-prompt:

dir /AL /S d:

(note - substitute different drive-letters as needed like C:, etc)


I ended-up just using an empty text-file at the root of each of my mapped folders, like "Version_001.txt", "Version_019.txt", etc. Then, whenever I browse to "D:\Inetpub", I glance at that file to see where I am.
