    Ok, I have a wierd problem (or maybe it's not that weird).

    On a server, let's call it \\myserver, I have 2 shares that I want to
    map to. \Share1 and \Share2

    Vista lets me do this without complaining, and all works.


    Now I logoff for the evening and log back on the next day. Low and
    behold, \Share1 doesn't get re-connected. After a bit of trying to
    force it to re-connect, vista tells me something about

    "cannot map drives to the same server more than once"

    WTH???

    I'm assuming you checked the "re-connect" box. This is a bit of a stretch
    but could you have mapped the drives to letters that may also be used by
    some other USB devices (like a flash drive or card reader) that are
    connected/dis-connected during the day?

    Yes, I checked the box for reconnect.

    I picked drive letters WAY down the alphabet (V: and W:), so nothing
    else is trying to use them.
