I am trying to install a USB drive. It tries to us F: which is a disconnected network drive, and I can't see any way to make it use another drive. How can I remove the disconnected network drive so I can install the USB drive there? Or is there some other solution I am missing?

I entered -- net use * /delete. The network drive still appears under "My Computer" as "Disconnected Network Drive" at F:.

Hi jc31415,

Maybe it was captured with the subst command. Try:

subst -d F:

Can you check if the F: entry is listed under mounted volumes apart from the local drivers in the following registry location:

HKLM\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

If yes, backup the registry and delete the entry:

To backup,

Navigate to HKLM\SYSTEM\ and click Rigistry menu and select Export, follow instructions to save the backup. Once done, delete the entry for F: drive and check if that helps.

Good Luck!!!

I had a similar problem on Windows XP and blowing away the keys under mounted devices and restarting cleared the problem. Thanks!
