I had to rebuild my Windows 7 pro desktop today and I was able to join the domain and logon to the domain

I am not getting the H Drive which is in my profile

I can access that share with no problem delete and add files and folders

just the mapping is not working

when I try to map the drive using my network the H drive is not available

so it is assigning the H drive but I have no access to it

Any thoughts

Try a dos prompt and enter "net use H: \\servername\sharename" and see what happens. Any error message would give the answer.

here it is

System error 85 has occurred.

The local device name is already in use.

so the H drive is already there and you can't see it.

You can try "net use h: /delete" which removes the H drive and see if it comes back when you do the "net use h: \\servername\sharename" afterr that.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Try turning User access control off... generally with login scripts its asking for permissions, but you dont receive the prompt.

maybe check in disk management if anything is already connected as H: - it should show anything thats not a network drive.

That was it in disk management I found 4 drives F G H and I assigned to device removable no media

This must be for the USB ports on the pc I changed them to U W X Y or something

Thanks
