VBScript to list Unavailable Mapped Drives

I have been using some simple VBScript to identify a users mapped drives but have found all sample scripts I have tried omit any Mapped Drive that is Unavailable (as listed in CMD Net Use)

Because I need to remove such drives before remapping how can I identify any that are already unavailable?

Sample script lists drives nicely but only those with a Status of OK:
On Error Resume Next

Dim objNetwork, objDrives, objShell
Dim strSubst, strSubstVal, strSubstName, strEnumDrive

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objDrives = objNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives

For i = 0 to objDrives.Count - 1 Step 2
	strSubst = objShell.NameSpace(objDrives.Item(i) & Chr(92)).Self.Name 
	strSubstVal = inStr(1,strSubst, Chr(40)) - 2
	strSubstName = Mid(strSubst, 1, strSubstVal)
	strEnumDrive = strEnumDrive & "Drive Letter: " & objDrives.Item(i) & vbCrlF & _
		"Drive Name: " & strSubstName & vbCrlF & "Drive Path: " &  _
		objDrives.Item(i+1) & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
Next
MsgBox strEnumDrive ,, "All mapped Drives"

Open in new window


Any suggestions on modifying this script or using another method?

Following script takes long time to enum all shares, active, disconnected, unavailable

---------
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_NetworkConnection",,48)
For Each objItem in colItems
    Wscript.Echo objItem.LocalName, objItem.RemoteName, objItem.ConnectionState
Next

Open in new window

------

Compare to this following code is very fast

-------
Set objNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set colDrives = objNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives
For i = 0 to colDrives.Count-1 Step 2
 Wscript.Echo colDrives.Item(i) & vbTab & colDrives.Item (i + 1)
Next

Open in new window

Thanks Dhara

First script shows just what I need, second script is faster but omits anything Unavailable

Now I have identified which mapped drives are Unavailable I can't find any way of scripting their removal

Normal delete using "objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strLocalDrive, True, True" does not work

Is there a way to remove an identified objItem.LocalName as found in your first script?

Used Registry entries to identify mapped drives and normal objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive to remove old drives

Removing drives errors but does allow remapping after next logon
