Last Modified: 2012-09-25
I have a home drive mapped to my user account in AD. Now the thing is, sometimes i take my laptop home to work, so my logon is extremely slow (i'm assuming its because it's try to map my home drive) is there anyway i can have this process timeout quicker or is there a workaround?
