Unsubstitute mapped drive

I recently received an answer to a question regarding mapping a drive to the same computer. The code used in the run command is:   subst F: C:\
This works great except there is no Disconnect option.  There are times I would like to disconnect from the local harddrive and use the same letter to connect to the server, but I can't release the mapped letter when substituted without restarting my computer.
Is there an  UnSubstitute command that can be run to release the drive letter?

You can try subst f: /d
this will delete the f drive substitution.
