Windows Mapped Drive Not Appearing

Hello Experts

I have successfully mapped a drive to \Z: see image. However, when I go explorer I can't see the mapped drive.

I'm sure there is something very simple not I'm missing.

Can someone let me know why I can't see the the Z: in explorer?


Cheers

If you ran cmd as administrator not as the user then it will now show in explorer.

Just try cmd as the logged in user

Sorry that was suppose to say not show.

Run the command as the user that is logged in and not as administrator.
Do you have any policies in place that hide drive letters ?
Try a different drive letter like H:
