I have a situation where I can't create a mapped drive (G:) pointing to user's default network folder.
This morning the user said that he could not connect to his network folder - G drive.
G drive is in the login script (net use G: \\server1\%username%).
When I looked at his "My computer" this morning, it says "G drive ... disconnected". I right clicked on G drive and chose "disconnect", but I would not work. So I ran "net use G:\ /DEL" in Command Window. After several trials, G drive was gone from "My Computer", but I logged off and logged back in, it fails to create the G drive in "My Computer".
So I run Command Window again and run "net use G: \\server1\"username", it says "it is in use". For testing I log him into the Terminal Server using his remote desktop, all the drive letters work just fine including G drive. So I ended up creating a short cut on this desktop "\\server1\"username" temporarily.
Do you have any suggestions other than deleting current profile and created it?
