Please see the attached images.

This is a W2008R2 Server with a "ghost" local drive we can't find anywhere.

The “W: local disc” reports size/free space identical to C: but when accessed, it lists a file structure similar to the one found under C:\Users\”any user”.

There is no broken mirror (as some already suggested); there are no references inteh registry that we can use to solve this.

Any ideas?

It's possible to map a folder to a drive letter using the subst command. Perhaps that's what it is? What does net use show for that letter?

I attached an image that show the NET USE in general. See Image3 anyways.

If SUBST was used, how I remove it? That is the goal.
