Drives Created with the Subst Command Are Not Connected

This article was previously published under Q269163
SYMPTOMS
If you create a drive using the subst command, when you open My Computer, the drive is displayed as a disconnected network drive (the icon contains a red "X").
CAUSE
This behavior occurs because Windows 2000 does not display the drive status correctly.
RESOLUTION
Even though the drive icon contains a red "X", you are still able to access the drive.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
