    Mapping a Network Drive

    Trying to connect a 2000 machine to another computer - I can see the other computer's drive in Network neighborhood but when I try to map using "Connect using a different name" to enable me to give it a different logon and password, I get "the network folder is currently mapped using a different user name and password" and it refuses to let me continue until I disconnect the old mapping. I have full admin rights and cannot see the previously mapped drive settings to disconnect (am told there are no mapped drives).
    Any ideas ?

    Here's something to try - but note you will lose any drive mappings and printer captures in the process:

    Start -- Run -- CMD
    NET USE * /DEL


    Or, you can just enter NET USE and see if there are any entries in the list.
