Network Drive Query – Mapping to local drive?

Hi all

We have a network drive at work (i.e. H:) and I was just wondering if there’s a login script that we can use (i.e. batchfile) to map that network drive to a local partition (i.e. D:) when the laptop is not connected to the wired network?

This is because certain applications works only with the network drive mapped to H:

Thanks in advance.
