    Lenovo M92Z Win 7 64 bit fails to open network drives for students

    Odd one this morning - one of our Windows 7 64 bit OS Lenovo M92Zs has stopped mapping home network drives for the students - a shared Student drive is mapped though.

    Oddly all ok for staff and it's so far just the one PC? I've run DELPROF2 and restarted with the same student log ons a few times but the issue persists?

    Do you have some hidden device taking the drive letter you use for home areas?

    Thanks for the suggestion @FN-GM but no it's not that as Staff access is OK and the users aren't having the same problem (yet) on any other clients.

    I'm going to try and run the W7 repair on it for starters. I don't particularly want to go through the 4 disks that Lenovo send as a factory restore as they seem to take about two days to get a machine back to anything like normal! I have a feeling that this particular machine has played up in the past and I just put a fresh local copy of W7 on it then so it should hopefully repair from the W7 disk.
