Drive mapping needs removed from drive preferences.

We have an X drive being mapped via preferences in AD for a particular OU. Someone then added the same drive mapping to the Default Domain of the same X drive.
I need to remove this X drive from the default Domain. Can I change the setting on the default domain from create to delete without it affecting the users in the other OU that do need to have the X drive mapped?

I would not change it to delete. I would delete the item in the Default Domain Policy and set the other one to Remove this item when it is no longer applied.

Yes.
GPOs are processed in the following order:

        The local GPO is applied.
        GPOs linked to sites are applied.
        GPOs linked to domains are applied.
        GPOs linked to organizational units are applied. For nested organizational units, GPOs linked to parent organizational units are applied before GPOs linked to child organizational units are applied.

Is the gpo assigned seperately at the top and to the OU that needs the X drive mapped?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
