I do a weekly program on a community radio station, and I want to automate the loading of my music and playlist files onto the station server.
Specifically I'm thinking of writing a batch file that will a) Create a directory on the station's music server; load my music and playlist files into it, so that I can integrate my program materials with the station's automation system; c) transfer changed files and log files back to my thumb drive and remove the directory and its contents from the server at the end of my airshift.
I think I can manage most of that if not for the problem of using UNC paths in CMD.exe. (The radio station's computers run Windows 8. I use XP at home).
Is there a work-around? Can I for example, invoke MOUNTVOL or SUBST from within the batch file, to create a temporary drive or directory pointing to the network path?
