You can use the Windows NET command to unmap all Windows mapped drives. For example, to unmap the Q: drive (has the drive letter Q:). >From the CMD window (Start->Run->CMD) enter (then press ENTER after you enter the following command): NET USE Q: /DELETE Example: NET USE Q: "/DELETE

To see what drives are Mapped


To MAP a drive but NOT remap after a reboot:

NET USE Q: "\\sharename" /PERSISTENT:NO ex) NET USE Q: "\\elvira\newq$" /PERSISTENT:NO

To MAP a drive and RE-map after a reboot

NET USE Q: "\\sharename" ex) NET USE Q: "\\elvira\newq$"

if a password is needed:

NET USE Q: "\\sharename" password /USER:domain\username /PERSISTENT:NO The drive letter in the command is the drive letter for YOUR computer - IT may or may not be the same drive letter as used by the target Host.
