I have a weird problem when i'm trying to map a drive in windows
Posted on 2007-03-19
I tried mapping a drive to a shared folder on the network today for someone at work and the weirdest thing happenned... I had IE openned up on a page when I tried mapping the drive and now everytime I open the drive the page opens up.
After trying to disconnect, remap the drive and reboot, I tried mapping the same drive on my computer which is on the same network. When I open up the mapped drive the same web page opens up!!!!!!! In other words, the share I am mapping the drive too is redirecting me to a file in that same share. If I try to rename the file, it asks me what program to use to open that new renamed file... and if I delete the file, it tells me that it can't find it.
I disabled the caching on the share but it didn't work. I checked the shared folders on the server to see if it was actually pointing to a file (didn't know you could do that) but the path is right.
So i'm out of ideas... I thought about restarting the server but we are in a huuuuuge network and I have to ask another departement for that so I thought I would ask here first.
Thanks in advance
