I've a question about the functionality of network drives in general and a strange issue I just ran into.
First, in regards to domains, how does Windows remember what mapped network drives you have attached to your computer? Is it based on your profile on the Domain Controller? Or is it tied to individual computers. I have had some serious hit and mostly miss occasions when I log into another computer on a domain and I don't have my mapped drives.
Second, I just found a case where someone logging into a virtual machine using RDP from a workstation found two sets of mapped network drives. One set was your typical set of mapped drives like '\\network_location' and another set was '\\local_computer\network_location'. Where one network drive referred to the actual location, the other referred to the mapped drive of the location on the local computer which they were using to access the virtual machine. What gives?
