Need to disconnect a rogue remote disk in Win NT.
Posted on 2003-12-08
I just set up a new job in Task scheduler that runs a batchfile which Maps a "nework drive" and copys data from the server to the mapped drive. This is using the net use command, and is actually mapping a drive to a share point on the same server (a subst command may have been a better way to go). The job worked the first time, but has failed mapping the drive since the first one. I checked under My Computer and the P: drive that I was mapping looks like a local drive and has the disk type of "Remote Disk". I can't figure out how to remove it. Has anybody seen "Remote Disk" before. When I type net use from a cmd prmpt it doesnt show up and there is no option to disconnect it.
