Network Drive disconnecting

Patrick Wilson 21 Reputation points

So I have GPO's to set up drive mappings for all of my users. Iromnically enough, it's the one for IT that's giving me fits. The system that I have in place is to delete all open drive mappings that are not being used with the exception of U, V, and W. All other drives that should be mapped by Group Policy are set to Update to the correct path. Not replace. The three letters that I mentioned are reserved for custom mappings for the individual users. The problem that I'm having is that if I manually map a drive to V for example, as soon as group policy refreshes it disconnects the V drive. This only seems to happen on users affected by this one individual Group Policy. I don't see any obvious differences between this GPO and others. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hello there,

    Try the policy analyzer tool.Policy Analyzer is a utility for analyzing and comparing sets of Group Policy Objects (GPOs). It can highlight when a set of Group Policies has redundant settings or internal inconsistencies, and can highlight the differences between versions or sets of Group Policies. It can also compare GPOs against current local policy settings and against local registry settings. And you can export its findings to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
