    Access to a Mapped Drive

    If I log in as one user, and set sharing on a folder so that everyone can read it, and then map a drive to it, shouldn't that folder / drive be accessible by other users (myself) when they are logged in? Or is it that once I log out as the user that did the mapping the drive is no longer "there"?

    Is there a way to do that -- map a drive so that it is universally accessible even if the user doing the mapping isn't logged in?

    Regards,

    Each user has to map to that share each time they log in, or set up a permanent mapping so that it will be immediately available at logon.

    The SHARE is what is important - it doesn't disappear unless it is un-shared.

    Um, duh. The user WOULD have to map to the share, now, wouldn't they? Silly me...

    Thanks,
