Type "net use /?" at a command prompt.

or see http://www.cezeo.com/tips-and-tricks/net-use-command/ for examples.

Yes - net use <drive letter>: "<path to drive>" /persistent:yes

So if you wanted an M: drive to go to Server1 and access folder Apps and have it reconnect on logon here is what you'd use:

net use M: "\\Server1\Apps" /persistent:yes

That's it - you'd have an M: drive to the apps folder on server1 that'd reconnect on logon.

Good luck!

to 'reconnect'?

You could use
net use r: /del
net use r: \\server\share

to disconnect and reconnect the r drive to an existing resource...
