Map Drive-Letters

$map_drive letterpair [letterpair ...]

This command is used to specify that a drive-letter which appears on a CopiaFacts command pathname is to be mapped to a local drive. For example, if all your network workstations refer to the CopiaFacts server drive C as their drive F, you can use the letter F in all CopiaFacts command files and use this command to have the server treat drive F as though it were drive C. A letterpair of 'FC' would be needed to effect this mapping.

The use of drive letters is no longer recommended, and if possible you should instead allocate a UNC pathname such as \\servername\COPIA which will contain the Copia Application Data folder (by convention named FAXFACTS).

The parameter on this command is used as follows:

letterpair A pair of alphabetic characters. The first character of the pair represents a drive letter that appears in CopiaFacts command files; the second represents the drive letter which is to be used instead of the first by the CopiaFacts server. Up to five pairs may be specified. Case is not significant.

The mapping takes effect for all CopiaFacts commands other than those which precede this command in the configuration file. Drive letters which appear in the middle of a double-quoted parameter string (for example as program arguments in a $run command) are not affected.

Positional Requirements: This command must precede any commands which it is to affect.
