    I have a small LAN (6PCs with XP Pro and Vista HP).

    Automatically reconnecting has worked fine but my LAN has just changed, so
    need to stop reconnecting to a mapped folders (as Z:\ drive).

    After a few days, I can't figure out how to do it. Examples of things I've

    1. Right clicking on the folder in Windows Explorer then choosing Disconnect
    works until the next reboot (Z:\ drive is right back again);
    2. Disconnecting (as 1 above) then re-mapping to the same folder WITHOUT
    selecting the Reconnect at next Login - Z:\ drive is back again at next
    3. Looking inside Disk Management console doesn't display any mapped
    4. I've mapped a different network folder using the same name but the
    original folder was simply renamed so I now have a new Z:\ drive and the
    original was remapped as Y:\ drive (I don't want either boo hoo).

    I can't find any answers on the web (it's all about "How to MAP A Network
    Folder") but nothing about breaking the automatic reconnection.

    Can anyone please help me, am very tired and sad :eek:(

    Have you tried opening up a command window (Start -> Run: 'CMD' and an
    Enter key) and then run this command in the window:

    NET SHARE /?

    The various possible commands shown might help disconnect your shared drive.
