I am using spacemacs (email@example.com), but this should be applicable to vanilla Emacs too. The version of Emacs I'm experiencing this issue on is "GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-w64-mingw32) of 2018-05-30".
I created a virtual drive in windows, using the
subst MS Windows command. Something like this:
w: subst c:/users/me/projects
Then, I open Emacs and try to access this drive. I fail to do so and the only information I get back is.
The system cannot find the drive specified.
How to solve this? Can I even use virtual drives in Emacs?
