I have a login script that maps drives for users: -
'// Map  drive
  If xuser = "auser" Then
  xNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive "B:"
  xNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "B:", "\\server\share"
  objShell.NameSpace("B:").Self.Name = "Drive Name"
End If

This works for most users but one has problems and it only works occasionally.

Can anyone help?

You could try this

GP Preferences will dramatically reduce your logon scripts

 GP Preferences has clean, easy-to-use reporting and UI

 

Lots of things get accomplished in scripts (mapped drives, set registry keys, managed devices, etc. )  GP Preferences can do all of that, plus you’ll be able to manage the setting in the UI, target your config with cool filtering, and use the reporting to see what you did. I’ll show you what I mean by using GP Preferences to map a drive.

 

Open up GPEdit for the GPO in question; click the ‘User Configuration’ folder, then click the ‘Preferences’ folder. You can see all of the user-relevant options you can set in Preferences. Find Drive Maps under ‘Windows Settings.’

Now right-click on Drive Maps and select ‘new’. You will see the dialog below: these drop down menus allow you to configure what you’ve been scripting, and more, in UI.

Here, I just filled in a couple things, the location (\\server\Users\%logonuser%) , the label (“User”), and the drive letter to use (“U:\”).

In the script we were deleting then adding the mapped drive, I just removed the line that deleted it.
