Description

Description:
This tool has been replaced by Work Drive and is now deprecated.

mapFolder is a simple batch script that created symbolic link from and to Arma 3 Tools, Arma 3, Arma 3 GU* and P drive. This has been designed to increase productivity.
Why a symbolic link rather than a shortcut? Simply because symbolic links are like mounts point, the link can be used in scripts, applications etc... whereas you can't with a shortcut.
