        I use a program called MyFolders. It creates a Right click menu option in File Explorer that then allows you to map a path to and save that mapped path to any external drive or other computer on your network. It appears this program has some “fatal” flaws that I have come across. I am wondering if there are any other programs that will allow you to map and save a path like MyFolders does and if you would recommend it?

         

        Thanks

        Could you explain what you mean by save the path? In a text file, shortcut, etc.?

        When I understand what the program is doing I may be able to duplicate it with PowerShell.

        When I use MyFolders I select a file or multiple files, right click, choose either copy or move, then navigate to the drive and folder where I want to perform these action then tell it do do them. If it is a new path or drive MyForums will ask you if you want to save this path, I usually always say yes so it then becomes available to me the next time I want to copy a file to that same folder.
