Disconnected but previously mapped network drives are still showing up in Win8.1Pro Explorer (File Manager)
Admin account Explorer does not show them but the User account does.
WD Discovery “The local device name has a remembered connection to another network resource”
This problem originally occurred when I decided to use the WD Discovery applet to map to the WD MyCloudEX2 drives “automatically” (i.e. “Would you like to map the network shares automatically? Click “No” to map the network shares manually.”). Now I can’t take back that grievous mistake, no matter what I try in my Win8.1Pro machine!
Here are but a few of the attempts that failed!
Could the automatic mapping feature that assigns drive letters do so with persistant=YES?
Since the drive letters are shown to be disconnected (dreaded- Red-X), how can I disable the persistant=Yes flag, since I can’t access the mapped (but disconnected) drives?
I have read through all 21 pages of the posts and have tried every option but I don’t see a post for resolving this issue
Here are some attempts to remove these disconnected but previously mapped drives:
Reboot << NFG
File Explorer >> Refresh << NFG
net use X: /delete << NFG
net use /delete \192.168.1.64\root$ <<NFG
TaskManager >> EndTask=Explorer >> Restart Explorer << NFG
(The proper context of the ‘net use’ command is here >>
