get rid of (dead links to) mapped network drives?
by theokari - 11/5/09 7:39 AM
I mapped 3 partitions from my old notebook to transfer data more easyly to my new system. I needed them a few days so I mapped them for reconnect on system startup. Now, without the network and the old notebook, I don't need them any more. But when I click on release network drive I get the message that it "Can't proceed cause of invalid network connection".
How can I get a work around, because I want to remove the network drives because I don't have the network connection and the drives any more!
tried NET USE L: /d but this didn't work either cause of invalid network connection.
Of course I can live with the dead links in the explorer, but now when I plug in a USB drive in, it get mapped to the drive letter already assigned for the network drive. Do to this I can acess only a few folders on this drive, the rest is inacassible do to ... you all can guess ... "invalid network connection!"
OK! I know I can give the USB drive another drive letter manually, but why should I? I want the dead network links removed from my view.
How can I accomplish this?
Thanks for your help.
