Scripting Question

Remapping a path with mapped drives

07/20/2016 749 views

We use mapped drives for a lot of our data. We recently moved the location for one of our drives. The old paths would normally be as follow

N:\School Info1\Type\Shoot Number\Person1
N:\School Info1\Type\Shoot Number\Person2
N:\School Info1\Type\Shoot Number\Person3

And so on for different folders all in the same location. I am trying to make a script that I could run to make it so it replaces the N:\ for a Y:\ instead. Any suggestions?

use can do net use /delete on the n: drives and net use to map them back to y:

or use a script to setup active sync to make the changes to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network\
There you should see whatever network drives you have mapped, as a list of letters.

if you are in a domain you can use a gpo to do this also
