how to permanently remove network drive?

By utken ·
I recently upgrade my Win98 to Win 2000 Pro. Before, I have access to C (local), J (my network user drive) and K (public drive). After the upgrade, I now have an additional drive called H in My Computer! It's actually a duplicate of my J drive, onlywith different drive letter. I never created such drive and don't know where it came from and have to disconnect this network drive manually each time I start computer. Any idea of how I can permanently remove this drive?
Thank you.

How to delete a Network Drive in XP

by tedgrant2 In reply to how to permanently remove ...

First, you need have a "Shared Folder" on your hard drive. If you haven't got one already, create a new folder on your hard drive called "Shared", then right-click it and select properties. Click the Sharing tab and tick the "Share this folder" box. Next, click "My Computer" and in the Tools Menu, click "Map Network Drive". Notice the little down-arrow next to the drive letter shown. Click the arrow to get a list of letters. Select the one you want to delete, then browse for your Shared folder and select it. By this means, you will assign the drive letter to a real folder. Make sure the "reconnect at login" box is un-ticked. Click the Finish button to get a warning. Answer YES and the Shared folder will open. Close it. Next, right-click the drive in My Computer and select disconnect. Ah, I hear you say, but it is still there! Re-boot and have another look - enjoy!
