    This is annoying. I logged onto my network at work with our home laptop--changed it to a domain logon. I then changed it back to logon to my home network as a workgroup and it keeps showing a mapped drive as "disconnected", yet the drive is connected. It also shows a little "arrow" on the network drive as oppossed to a red X and its definitely mapped (see jpeg below). I've disconnected and reconected it with no success. When the computer first boots up, it says it is no longer connected to my desktop computer. Also, when I log off, it attempts to synchronize with the network drive (I have "My Documents" on the laptop assigned to the desktop "My Documents".

    How do I fix this? :confused:
