Arbitrary "Disconnected Network Drives" show up in My Computer...
Posted on 2004-03-21
When I open My Computer, it shows two 'Disconnected Network Drives' for drive F: and drive G:.
If I right-click and choose to disconnect, it gives an error message that says:
'The network connection could not be found.'
If I double-click, it gives an error message that says:
'F:\ refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to makes sure that the deisk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the onternet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.'
I looked in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network. There are no keys under that key that say that there is a drive mapped there.
I also tried maping a valid location to those drive letter. I then reboot, then i disconnect the drive. The drive disappears, but then reappears as a 'Disconnected Network Drive' after a reboot, wich brings me back to my initial problem.
Does anyone have any ideas?
