Thanks Michael.  The subst command was exactly what I needed.  All I had
to change was to add a trailing \ to the subst x: h:\ in order to tell
it a path to map to.  My backups seem to be working great now.

Thanks Doug.  What you sent wasn't exactly what I needed but I learned
more fun Dos commands.  You can bet I'll find a place to use your first
scripts, or at least a variant of it.

Thanks for helping out with such and obscure topic for this list.
