Multiplying mapped drive

I have a PC running Windows 7 that is connected to four NAS boxes: 2 Synology and 2 Netgear. Recently, one particular share has taken to filling up all the available drive letters thus replicating its share until there are no more available letters. I have tried disconnecting them and rebooting (it was suggested this would force sense into the registry) but it still keeps happening. It is always the same share and only on this one PC. Any ideas?

Try rightclicking each drive letter and disconnect. Then reboot and reconnect just the drive letter you need

I have Network Drive Manager installed, but it has been for at least a couple of years. I will try and 'park' it to see if things improve. The NAS don't have any utilities running. So far as I am aware, I don't have a start-up script - I ought to know as I set this machine up, but I'm not staking my house on it!

Then it sounds like Network Drive Manager is messing up for some reason. It's the only automated utility that's dealing with mapping shares, so disabling it should correct the problem

Even though I have changed nothing to do with this issue, it has stopped 'kicking off'!
