Where is the drive mapping coming from? A login script, batch file or the user's desktop OS?

Where the mapping is coming from would vary the removal procedure.

If it is the user's OS and it is Windows XP, you would use this method:

Click My Computer.
Highlight the networked drive.
Click Tools.
Then Click Disconnect Network Drive.

We're having the same issue on our network. Unfortunately, doing a "Right Click/Disconnect" (or equivalent) does nothing. It just echoes back . . .

"The network connection could not be found"

AND we don't know where this mappings are coming from. They just started populating themselves a few weeks ago. Eventually they take all available lettered drive mappings.

Quite a problem!

Anyone getting this? If so, how did you get rid of it?

the easiest fix Ive found for this is to simply reset the machine account in AD then re-join it to the domain. Ive had about a half dozen units do it.

Very, very interesting. Does anyone know where this is coming from? After all, it seems to be impacting a few of us now.
