  • Cannot Disconnect Network Drives

    I have a win 2k server box which has lots of network drives on it, but some of these drives have a red cross mark on it, I now don't intend to use it. Is there a way that I can get rid of all those drives?

    I tried:
    1. Click Tool --> Disconnect Network Drive, but the network drives that I want to disconnect are not in the Disconnect Network Drive window, so I can't select and disconnect them.
    2. Right click on each of the network drives and select "Disconnect" from the menu, but the error window pop-up said "The network connection could not be found."
    3. Type "Net Use" in the command prompt, but the network drives that I want to disconnect are not listed.
    4. Type "Net Use X: /d" in the command prompt, the message "The network connection could not be found. More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2250."

    I have no idea as to why this is happening. Please advice how to remove these unwanted network drives. Thanks.

      Can you restart your system?
      It works?
      Have you some kind of logon script or something that could be map those drives?
