Changing Disk Drives

As you configure DOS to the environment you need, you might find times when you need to adjust how DOS treats your disk drives and directories. Three commands enable you to do just that. You use the ASSIGN command to redirect disk requests to different drives, the JOIN command to treat a disk drive as a subdirectory, and the SUBST command to treat a subdirectory as a disk drive.

The ASSIGN Command

You use the external command ASSIGN to redirect all DOS read-and-write (input-and-output) requests from one drive to another. Each drive is a DOS device. When you use the ASSIGN command, DOS can interrogate a different disk from the one actually specified on a command line.
