Cant use system variables in drive paths?

i'm trying to set say DH1: as %homepath%\Folder

and it says no disk present in DH1: if i type the path in fully it works fine.

can this be fixed in any way?

Thanks from me too.
I've NEVER ever used %homepath% in my life, much less did I know about its existence.
Seems that on consumer machines, its value is often identical to %userprofile% which I've been using since Win9x to this day.
(in my case: always, but I would NOT dare claim they always have to be identical; it depends on system configuration, of course)

[edit]Seemingly it was a good thing not to claim that.
