    Picking up old mapped drives

    Hi,

    We map network drives via logon script.

    I've moved some shares across to a new server and also created a new share. I've changed the logon script.

    When a teacher logs on its picking up the new share correctly as a mapped drive but the one that i've just moved has a red cross against it. I've unshared the old share hence the red cross but its not mapped the new one? Any ideas?

    the share has everyone with full control and correct ntfs permissions but they can't browse to the share but going into network in my computer they can get it?

    Thanks

    The easiest way is just to ask users to right click on old connection and select disconnect

    Thanks. I've just changed the drive letter on the logon script to a different one than the old one used and it works fine. Its there a script to delete the old connections before mapping new ones?

    I had this last week after moving our staff shared area. It was cached in the users profile. Deleted, logged back on, all good!

    Think you can use a wildcard to delete them all at once but I have never used this so test first
    NET USE * /d /y
