How to Map Network Drives Using PowerShell

How to Map Network Drives Using PowerShell

Prior to the PowerShell era, we could map networks drives using a batch file that contained a net use command:

net use M: \\nasserver\Share /Persistent:Yes

To do it in PowerShell, open up your favourite terminal application and enter the following command to map network drives.

New-PSDrive -Name "M" -PSProvider FileSystem -Root "\\nasserver\share" -Persist
