Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I am not sure what the question is exactly.

Check on the folder and share Security tab and ensure that the user has appropriate access.
If you are trying to map a drive letter using NET USE you should keep in mind that you can perform a temporary or permanent mapping by using the /persistent switch

You can use NET USE or PUSHD to map the drive.

If you have a share on \\servername\myshare:

net use z: \\servername\myshare /persistent:no /y

to remove the share

net use z: /d

Using PUSHD
It will try to use the first available drive letter starting from Z

pushd \\servername\myshare

to remove the share

popd

I hope this somewhat helps you.
