My aren't we a little grammar nazi
You are creating a symbolic link, while this works it is not really any better than simply attaching to a regular network share, either a hidden one or a user created one. It takes the same effort to create a link as it does to create a share, so it's really not any better or worse, some might see it as more convenient but that's debatable.
One caveat to warn about that sometimes in attempting to DELETE a symbolic link you will actually delete the actual folder or drive contents it is pointing to. You can wipe out a good portion of a drive or folder's contents before you know what's going on. You CAN use the built in command rmdir (or rd for short) safely from the command line.
I only mention this deletion issue because I had a user at my work do a whole bunch of sym links to stuff she wanted "easier" access to from her second PC. She stuck them on her desktop so she could use them on THAT PC too (instead of the more logical shortcut link) . She then shared her DESKTOP folder and reached the other stuff through the links via the network from the other PC. Well, her profile got hosed (not due to this, it was her mucking around in other stuff) and she as directed by IT (ME ) she deleted it while logged in to the administrator account and all the stuff that she had links too went bye bye as well. She neglected to inform us of the linking she had done.
Incidentally for a GUIfied sym link creator look up HardLinkShellExt in Google, makes it possible to just drag and drop to create sym links.
In case you're confused:
The proper syntax for creating a share at the command line to share an entire drive is:
net share f$=f:\
Where $ behind it makes it a hidden share, not visible to network browsers but still just as available. Make it a visible share name by dropping the $. You can specify a drive or folder as the target. Or simply RIGHT click on the drive or folder and choose PROPERTIES and sharing and specify it there.
Create a network map from any share thus:
net use F: \\COMPUTERNAME\f$
The COMPUTERNAME is the host name of the PC and the share name is whatever you named it above, again the $ implies it's a hidden share.
