External hard drives

By wesley.chin ·
There is a mapping on a system to a folder on another computer. Then an external hard drive is connected. the contents of the external hard drive can be seen only when the mapping is disconnected. Why is this, and is there a way to change it so that the disconnection does not have to happen?

This is a bit far fetched but try assigning a different Letter to your mapped network drive. Maybe something at the bottom of the list like Z: or X:

That thought had crossed my mind. Actually the folder that I am mapping is an external hard drive connected to another computer. On that computer, it is "E". So for sake of uniformity, I want to map it to "E". So it would be preferable to map it as "E".
