Convert between OS Paths Workflow

Recommended Posts

Convert OS Paths Workflow for Alfred app

Worflow for swithching back and forth between UNIX and Windows Paths, specifically between Mapped Drives and Mounted Network Volumes. It features the actual switching of paths, optionally open the path in Finder, and configuration options to list, add and remove mappings between Windows drives and UNIX volumes.


You'll need to add one or more mappings before doing the conversions. Check below on usage for more info.



  • Type convertadd keyword to add a new mappping, for example convertadd R MyVolume. This will map R:\ Windows Paths with /Volumes/MyVolume UNIX Paths. After convertadd you need to specify a Windows Drive letter, followed by a UNIX Volume name.


  • Type convertlist keyword to list current mappings. Hold down the alt key to delete a mapping.


  • Type convert keyword followed by a valid and mapped Windows or UNIX path to have it converted and copied to the clipboard. Hold down Command to instead open the path in Finder if converting to UNIX.
