Drive mapping label change

By dave the IT guy ·
When a server was installed the description field given to it was very long. ie.
"Standard Install File Server at Location 1."
When creating drive mappings to shared folders on that server, XP creates a label that includes this description as well as the share name. ie.
Sharename on Standard Installl File Server at Location 1 (servername) (X:)
This is way too long. I have changed the description field on the server to make it just read "Filesrvr Sitename". My normal user profile does not map to this server as I am not at that site. If I manually map a drive letter to the share on that server, I get the label that I want.
Sharename on Filesrvr Sitename (X:)
Clients on the site in question are still getting the old label on their mapped drives because they existed before I made the change on the server. The old text string must be being cached somewhere on the local PC's but I don't know where. Any idea where they would be and how I get each client (200 of them) to update the mappings to the new name?
