I have a NAS and I need to backup to it's USB drive. However, each USB drive makes  a different share name when connected.
So I need a script to connect a drive to one of 3 different share names.

Like this:

Net Use Z: \\server\share1
or, if not available
Net Use Z: \\server\share2
or, if not available
Net Use Z: \\server\share3

Batch file or VBS would be great!
Any ideas!

Why not use those exact commands in a .bat?

net use Z: \delete
net use Z: \\server\share1
net use Z: \\server\share2
net use Z: \\server\share3

It will connect on the working one and error on the rest.

HTH,
Dan
