replacing mapped drives with Network Locations in Win7
Posted on 2014-01-24
We have multiple sites, with common Share names at each server in the multiple sites. Mapped drives is too limiting, I want to migrate to Network Locations for all users, and roll them out via login script or Group Policy.
so we would go from "M:/" ( representing \\server\sharename) to "Sharename (location)" in everybodies Windows Explorer window, facilitating a common language across our sites for identifying where data is residing. (currently M:/ might represent a different Share at a site, and people from multiple sites might require access to the share at another location. Communication is not sufficient to solve the problem.
