    Drive created using subst - write permission problem


    Hello. I had Windows 8.1 installed and some months ago I associated drive letter (Q*Smile with C:\Users\Michal\Desktop\Q_Drive. I have my photos collection on that drive and I use it with Adobe Lightroom. Everything worked fine with 8.1, but after upgrade to Windows 10 Lightroom can't write to that drive. For example it can write to C:\Users\Michal\Desktop\Q_Drive\00_Lightroom_Photos but it can't to Q:\00_Lightroom_Photos. Windows file explorer can write to both. Any ideas ?

    :)

    HTML files on hard drive

    Similar problem with PDF files. Microsoft Edge (MSE) is supposed to allow PDF files to be opened and viewed and it does unless you create the file on a Subst drive - MSE does not seem to recognise virtual drives created using the Subst command! Thank goodness
    for Adobe Reader.

  3. Windows 10 issue "Subst" command doesn't work

    • “sfc /scannow” didn't make any difference (no integrity problems found.
    • run command (w' admin privileges) subst [drive] ["some folder poath"] succeeds.
    • run command subst shows the correct subst.
    • For example If I open file browse dialog from msdev 2013 I can see subst drive (not from every app)
    • Subst drive still remains invisible from explorer.exe.
