How can I find out where a mapping drive is pointing to.
Like the f:\ letter is pointing to \\server\data. How can I find that information on windows 2000, XP, etc..

You should also be able to pull this information from My Computer.

NET USE by itself will display all mappings.

jonpaulr, I think that would be for the folders that are shared on the current computer, I think it does not include mapping letters path.
