NETDFREE

NetDfree is a handy utility program that will return the next available unmapped Novell network drive. Certain software packages allow the passing of directory or drive parameters at the command line to execute the program outside of the default installation directory. For example, you might want your default directory to be your network "home" directory, but the application program being executed will store data in the program directory (ex. database application programs on the network).

One problem with using a MAP command is that the mapped drive letter is unknown until after the execution of the command. NetDfree will return the next available drive before the execution of the MAP command. An example batch file using the program is provided below:

Cls
@echo off
Goto Start

Echo Clientele Support System Loading - Please Wait
set clavm0=c:\,250
f:\public\netdfree -q-eDRVLTR
map %DRVLTR%:=cc1/scsi3:support\ctel >NUL
%DRVLTR%:ctel -D%DRVLTR%:\support\ctel
map del %DRVLTR%:
set clavm0=
echo on
