<i><b> Can you create a login script to run when the user logs in?<i>
rem net use u: /del /y >nul
rem net use u: \\server_IP\users\username
Copy that into notepad and save as something like user.bat
Or you can set the home folder as Z: in AD with a mapping to the \\servername\users\username
I would also not choose Z: but instead something like P for Personal or U: for users… I find that if you block A,C,D,E as normal drives in your PC and then stick in a USB thumb drive and if you have Z: taken by a mapped drive there are times it can’t find an available drive to choose from.
