Delete a Disconnected Network Drive

Posted on 2004-11-08

I build Windows XP machines. I have assigned two network drives via a login script: G: and J: to aid in the building of them.

If I login as the domain administrator, these drives naturally appear which is fine.

When I login as the local administrator or as a local user, these drives are still there showing as Disconnected Network Drives. I cannot delete them as I am on as the local administrator; not the domain administrator.

I have tried the following to delete them:

a) net use g: /delete
b) subst g: /d
c) disabling the login script
d) regedit / HKLM / System / Mounted network drives

If there is another way of deleting these drives so they do not appear in Windows Explorer I would be interested. BTW what is the SFT menu in Windows Explorer?

Many thanks

    Check in this registry key and delete each folder :

    While logged as local Admin check also the same place in each user's SID
    Where S-1-5-21 is a SID of a user.
    You can have other SID to check.

    Thanks Longbow

    In the end I simply rigged up a new login script.

    Thanks for your input.
