RemoveNetworkDrive with wildcards

Removing a network drive is easy enough. I would like to disconnect all mapped drives, then remap them in a login script. I would preferr not to have to have a line for each drive letter that exist. I thought there might be a way to use a wildcard in this. I like to keep things simple an short. Below is the script I am working from, nothing fancy.

on error resume next
Dim WshNetwork
Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

WshNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "D:"

WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "F:", "\\server\share"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "M:", "\\server\share"
WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "N:", "\\server\share"

Thanks

    For Each oDrive In oFSO.Drives
        If oDrive.DriveType = 3 Then Debug.Print oDrive.DriveLetter 'remove mapping code goes here

I think we missed the important part ( 'remove mapping code goes here) what would that be? I can delete individual drive mappings. I want to delete all drive mappings without listing each mapping.

Try this.

'Include a reference to Windows Script Host Object Model
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim objWSH As New WshNetwork, _
        objDrives As WshCollection, _
        intCounter As Integer
    Set objDrives = objWSH.EnumNetworkDrives
    For intCounter = o To (objDrives.Count - 2) Step 2
        objWSH.RemoveNetworkDrive objDrives.Item(intCounter), True
    Next
    Set objDrives = Nothing
    Set objWSH = Nothing
End Sub
