I have a user that has a scan drive which auto maps on upon login to drive letter S. I want to change that to K. When I disconnect it and set it to K all is good. Once i reboot it goes back to S. I know for sure that means there is a login script for that. How can I edit to atleast for her so that it goes to K?

Try this for a computer logon script:

net use S: /delete
net use S: \\server\share /persistent:yes

You should first run an RSoP report against her machine to see how that script is getting mapped.  It could be either through a login script that you mentioned or they might be using group policy preferences to map the drive.

You can apply it in the user's AD User Profile, which would be exclusive to that user.

You can create a GPO and target this directly to a specific user.

Is the computer a member of a domain or standalone?

RSOP.msc will check to see what policies are getting applied to the user as well as the computer.

You will find the scripts under User Configuration > Windows Settings > Scripts
Or the mapped drivers under: User Configuration > Preferences > Drive Maps

It's very possible that it is either of the options above. Let me know if you need additional assistance with the Group Policy, as you stated you are new on it! Also, if you could mention what version of Windows you are on, that will be vey helpful for troubleshooting further.

You should use a policy, Carlos!
