    :cool: Our users sometimes map drives temporarily and forget to unmap them. I'd like to add something which verifies the existance of a drive or the mapping will be removed. Something like (before we map the mandatory drives):

    For each mapped drive, check and see if it can connect. If it's not, then disconnect.

    If you want to keep some mapped drives rather than remove all of them, and just test to see which are really being used, you can run simple batch file:

    if not exist x:\nul net use x: /d /y

    substitue x: for whatever drive letter you want to test for.

    Hopefully this will give you a little more flexibility if you require it.
