We run a Windows 2000 domain with several servers.  On various workstations it appears people have manually mapped drives to file shares on the different servers.  As we retire some of our older servers, we are ending up with all of these "orphaned" mapped drives that are pointing to file shares on servers that no longer exist.  Is there an easy way to clean these up?

from the command prompt, you could use this command:

net use <drive letter to orphaned drive mapping> /delete

Hope this helps!
