          As I understand it, all you want to do is to change how network drives are displayed:

          At the moment you see "username on \\servername\users (H: )"
          You want to see "username (H: )"

          Have you tried different view settings in XP?

              No, I don't think you can do it on the server side, unless you push registry settings to define a particular view when the user goes into My Computer

              Why is it so important?

                  Can you please use more formal English -- txtspk doesnt make it easier to understand

                  Can you post a copy of your logon script that hides the path at the moment?

                    I am trying to help you but you are not helping yourself. Please be aware that all members here give up their free time to help others and comments like "you will feel good" and "ask your boss" do not encourage people to do this.

                    Can you please review my post #5 and confirm that is the result you are wanting to get?
                    Can you also provide the script you mention in your post #8 as it seems to give a solution close to the problem.

                        Set objWSHNet = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
                        objWSHNet.MapNetworkDrive "V:", "\\server\shardfoldr"
                        if err.number=0 then
                        sDrive = "V:\"
                        Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
                        oShell.NameSpace(sDrive).Self.Name = "Data"
                        end if
                        this is the logon script to hide the path usin logon script...

                          Well, given you are mapping the home drive to H separately, you could have a logon script that just sets the name:

                          Code:
                          sDrive = "H:\"
                          Set oShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
                          oShell.NameSpace(sDrive).Self.Name = "Home"
                          You would need to be sure the policy setting the drive applied before the script ran, or maybe a long-ish delay at the start of the script to ensure the drive was there when it attempted to set the name

                          You will not be able to do it purely on the server side as it is a client setting that is being changed, totally separate from the part of the script that actually does the drive mapping.

                          There may be a registry setting that stores the name of the drive that could be changed through a script, but since it is a network drive I do not think the setting will be permanent.

                          Note I have deleted your two posts bouncing this topic -- it does take a few minutes to consider and type up a response.

                              Does the first line of my post #13 give you a clue?

                              You are confusing two separate things:
                              Use of a $ in a share name to hide the share when browsing the machine it is shared on
                              The name that is displayed by default when you map a networked drive to a letter. This is typically "sharename on servername (L: )" and shows the $ if that is part of the sharenam

                              What your script is doing is changing the display name after the drive has been mapped
