    VISTA Help! Cannot remove mapped drive!

    So I mapped a drive from my laptop to my desktop in Vista. All worked well and then I wanted to get rid of it. And I CANT!!! I can rename it all I want, but no matter what I cannot delete this mapping. When I got to 'Map Network Drive' the drive letter doesnt show up (because it thinks its mapped). When I plug in my USB jump drive, it takes the space of this mapping, however it doesnt rename or indicate that the USB drive is taking up that slot...

    Can anyone help with this? How on earth do I remove this mapping?

    Maybe popd will delete it. Not sure if you can pass a drive letter to it or if it only deletes drive letter added by pushd. Also, if you click on tools, is there not an option for Diconnect Network Drive?

    You cant disconnect it because its not connected (at least when not on the home network).

    Well it turns out Vista doesnt remove unmapped drives from My Computer until you do a full reboot. I always hibernate my laptop, but once I rebooted it finally went away.

    Good info on the net use though.
