Access to map drives

When a user logs into his PC, a map drives appears automatically. All users have the same drive mapped. Where is this configured in Windows server 2012? I checked in Active Directory-User-Properties-Profile and there is nothing shown. Where can i find this configuration?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Could be group policy preferences. Could be a login script. Could just be someone went and mapped the drive (they are persistent across logins by default.)

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

You can find Group Policy Objects (GPO) by typing gpmc.msc at a run line or command prompt. GPO's are pretty involved and are most often used in domain joined computers. Login scripts are often set in the user property sheet in Active Directory Users and Computers. The scripts are called when the users login and are located in the domain controllers sysvol share.

Just as an extra thought on this topic: I would strongly recommend against using mapped drives at all. The CryptoWall virus which is prevalent at the moment can only encrypt files on the infected PC and it's mapped drives. I have had several customers recently lose all their data on their servers because they had mapped drives. Some of them had good backups to recover from and others lost everything.
Not all A/V software can protect against this virus.
Any drives not mapped were unaffected.
Much safer to use shortcuts to the drives.
