How to Manually Create a Virtual Drive in Windows XP

*Click Start and then Run. Now type cmd on the text field. The command prompt will appear. On the command prompt, type subst x: “C:\windows”

*The letter “x” represents the drive letter of the virtual drive you wish to create. You can choose any letter as long as it doesn’t already exist on your computer. However, do not use the letters A, C, E, F, or Q because they are common drive letters and your computer may already be using these letters. 

*C:\windows represents the directory that you want to place your virtual drive. You choose any directory or file on your computer. 

After you have input this information in the command prompt, you can view the new drive by going to My Computer.
