Mapped drive opens as file

Hi Experts,

I have a very strange problem. I have a map drive mapped to a shared resource on a Win2003 Server. When i try to open the Map drive with a "Douple Click" it opens me the "Open With" window as if i'm opening a file with a strange format with the uniform messgae:

" Chose the Program you want to use to open this file:
File: I:\ "

If i "Right Clicked" it and chosed "Open", it opens normally in Windows Explorer !!!!


I have other map drives and they are working normally, and this map drive is mapped on other machines and is also working normally.

I tried to disconnect it and reconnect again, but still the same. Tried to disconnect it and map it again with another Drive letter, but also the same.

Any Help,

just a wild guess, maybe in i:\ there is a file named autorun.inf?

Or perhaps a desktop.ini hidden system file in there?  I had this once but it was for every folder on every drive which brought up the search box - that was fixed by a file association problem but if this is only one drive unlikely to be an issue.

dir /a from cmd.exe prompt to see all files in the root of the drive (or adjust the explorer settings if you prefer)

Hi experts,

I tried both before and nothing of these files are there. The strange problem is that occurs on two or three machines while other machines is working well !!!

Don't know sorrry, that's why I left the Q without any more comments.  If it only effects one machine, does it only effect your profile -- i.e. login as a different user does it do it?  If not then delete your profile locally on that machine while logged in as a different admin and rename your romaing profile and see if that helps (you can easily put it back...).
