I mapped a network drive to my Apple Time Capsule as T, but due to some configuration problems I had (but have fixed) it wouldn't reconnect at login.

In one of my tests I mapped the same drive as Z and left reconnect at login checked on accident.

Now, Z connects fine at login, but T doesn't. When I reboot, they both show up, but T is disconnected and Z isn't. I would like to permanently remove Z and make T the only mapped drive to the Time Capsule.
I can temporarily make the changes, (T connects fine if I manually do it no matter if Z is connected or not) but they revert back when I reboot.

I want to make Z go away forever and redo the T connection. How can I do that on Windows 7?

net use z: /d /y
reg delete HKCU\Network\Z /f

should remove all traces of it. If the drive doesn't disappear then reboot, and it should be gone when you log back in.

the first part removed it, but the 2nd part says it can't find that registry value. Haven't had a chance to reboot yet (too much work open) so I can't test if it got rid of it completely, but thank you so far! – James P. Wright Jul 2 '11 at 19:28
@Pselus: It says so precisely because the first command removed it. I only included reg delete in case there were any leftovers, but generally net use ... /d is enough. – grawity Jul 2 '11 at 21:57
