Hi

We use windows 2012 as DC and windows 7 and our workstations. when a student logs in there are two network drives that getted mapped through a logon VB script.
They mapped drives are "H" drive and V drive

When i open my computer , please see the snapshot, the mapped  V drive has a red X mark.
But when i click it opens and the red mark disappears.

We use scratch 1.4 and without double clicking the V drive after login , from the scratch we cant see the V drive.
If the red X mark goes then iam able to see the Vdrive.

So iam not sure as why the V drive has a red X mark.

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks
