My guess is someone disabled it by accident.  Thanks.

    Accepted Solution

    Are you part of a domain? There may be a group policy enabled that disabled the Map Network Drive function. Run gpresult at the command prompt to see what GPOs are affecting your login or that computer.

    If you're not part of a domain, go to start --> run and type "gpedit.msc". Browse down to User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Windows Explorer and double-click on "Remove Map Network Drive..." and set it to "Disabled".

    (If you are part of a domain, you would browse to the same location in the Group Policy editor but it would be in Active Directory Users and Computers and not gpedit.msc)
