Hi guys!

Often I have to map up to 10 drive letters to different machines.
When I log on, I get 2 drive mappings through logon script, they are S: and T:.

What Id like to find is a quick way to remove all my drive mappings through script, except keep S: and T:
I cant use:
net use * /d /y
because that will remove S: and T:

Do you guys know how I could quickly remove all drive mappings in a batch file except retain S: and T: ?
Thanks guys

Simon

Change each instance of %a to %%a if you're running it in a .cmd file.
