Hello techs,
A home user lost her mapped H drive and I cant remap it.  I can ping the server.  I can browse to the server but the home directory is empty - cant see anyone's folders.   The vpn is working correctly.  EU can map the drive if RDP'd in to another pc.

Maybe another disk is using H. Check the diskmanagement on that PC and if h: is assigned to something (ie a cardreader or optical drive), reassign that to another drive letter.

If you enter:

net view \\servername

...do you see the share?
