Repeated Drive Mappings

By mvaillancourt ·
I have an end user PC that remaps an already existing drive. The orginal would be mapped to U:, then over time the same drive then will map to k:, M:, T:, so on. Any idea how to stop this?

I would map the drive that you want through a logon script NET USE U: \\server\share, then restrict the user by not making them an administrator.
Another technique would be to apply a System Policy, and deny the ability to map network drives.

If you've got a Novell server, then a Novell logon script might be using a poorly worded MAP command to assign the drive to un unused letter. This could cause the drive to be mapped repeatedly.

Multiple drive mappings are often caused by a bug in Office97's FIndFast. To fix it delete the FindFast indexes then choose Close and Stop to prevent it from starting again.

Hope this helps,

Louise

I encountered exactly the same problem. I found out that it was caused by the installation of Winzip. If you uninstall Winzip, the problem will disappear.

Try it!
