Not necessarily. This is why using the backticks is discouraged.
They have weird escaping rules and generally non-obvious.
Stick to $( ... ).

Are you sure you're looking from the same user session?
If you start mintty/cmd elevated, you won't see drives mapped in Explorer
(non-elevated).

For me, everything works as expected. Drives mapped in batch file on system
start visible in Explorer without an issue.
