Command Line - Check if Site is Connected. If it is not, Connect it

Below and also attached is text for use to check if a drive letter is mapped using WebDrive. If the drive letter is not mapped, WebDrive will then attempt to connect the site.

This may be useful if the drive letter seems to disconnect at times, or simply to ensure the resulting batch file or later commands will succeed by having the letter drive available.

set webdrive="c:\program files\webdriveapp\bin\WebDriveCLI.exe"
set sitename=iiswin10

rem this checks if drive letter W: is defined already or not, use your drive letter here
vol w: >nul 2>nul

if errorlevel 1 (
    @echo Drive is not currently connected
    goto MAPDRIVE

) else (
    echo Drive is already mounted
    goto DOWORK


    @echo mounting site '%sitename%'
    %webdrive% --mount %sitename% --startup --nowait

    @rem check process return code, anything other than 0 means it failed to mount
    if %ERRORLEVEL% GEQ 1 echo Error mounting drive
    echo %ERRORLEVEL%
    if %ERRORLEVEL% GEQ 1 goto EXIT
    @echo drive mounted successfully


rem enter your commands here
dir w:\
