mysterious drive mappings

By sli ·
hi all

I recently mapped a drive to a network share on a server in windows explorer as g: on win2k sp2. After this, additional drive mappings (d, e, f,h,i,j) to the same network share started appearing. I disconnected these drive mappings but they keep appearing.

I've checked HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Network\Persistent Connections] but couldn't find the entries that relate to the drive mappings.

I've also tried deleting the extra drive mappings in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Explorer\Mountpoints] but they reappear as soon as i delete them.

Please help

If you use Microsoft Office, disable/uninstall Microsoft Find Fast option.

I had a similar problem on NT that was caused by shortcut links mapping to UNC names rather than mapped drives. I was able to change this in Policies. Don't recall if Win2K has a similar policy setting, but it is worth checking out.

Also this would not make the problem go away, but it may help manage it. Try putting a net use delete in your logon scripts. I use it at work, and it works great. If you need the exact syntax, e-mail me and I will get it from work and send it to you.

Good luck,
