Find the Path of the Mapped Drives

Find the Path of the Mapped Drives

I have 6 Mapped Drives on my computer and want to see each of them to which Path they are mapped to.
Now if I run the Command "Net Use", I see just the Path for one Mapped Drive, but not for the rest of the mapped drives.

Any help will be very appreciated.

net use DeviceName gets the path for a specific connection, but net use by itself (with no param) should get a list of all the paths — works perfectly here on W7 (in both elevated and non-elevated prompts). Regards, Joe

If you look at the network drives via "This PC" or "My computer" (depending on your windows version) is should show you the full path beside the drive letter.

1st)  Run net use from an admin cmd prompt and a non elevated cmd prompt.

  When mapping drives for a couple reasons the way you map them may only have them show in one of the two, or not at all.

2nd) check the registry for the drive mapping.

I am on mobile so this is from memory, the path might be slightly different but is similar to:

HKey_Local_Machine\control sets\current control set\services\microsoft\lanmanserver\shares

a registry hive similar ti that above will hold the share info including path.

> Command Prompt with Administrator (Right Click then Run As Administrator)

FYI, that's what's known as an "elevated prompt", as I mentioned in my previous post. For me, it worked in both elevated and non-elevated prompts, but that may be because my user account is a member of the Admin group. In any case, thanks for letting us know that worked for you — glad to hear it! Regards, Joe
