Net Use Command:


To Add a Drive

net use (drive-name): \\Servername\Foldername :persistent


To Delete a Mapped Drive

net use (Drivename): /del                           or                                net use (Drivename): /delete


In case if you get any error while running the Net use command like : NET NOT RECOGNIZED AS A COMMAND

Then Follow the Below Steps:

Open Command Prompt> Go To “C” Drive> “Windows” Folder> “System 32″ Folder”

and then run the Net Use Command mentioned above.

Also check the below Value:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment\Path

I suspect it is a Reg_SZ value. It should be a Reg_Expand_SZ value
