For whatever reason I don't recall how the 'd2' folder shown below was established on my workstation. Can someone please direct me to where such things are set? I would like to remove it, but don't know how. It's really difficult to be drawing a total blank on this.

This workstation has three internal hard drives: C, D, E.

You can potentially open a command prompt or PowerShell window and enter the net use command. It will show you the source UNC path of that drive.

Of course, you can always right-click the drive and choose Disconnect, also.

    I'm marking this as the answer as it seems correct, but oddly, after I posted this question, the network location disappeared, so I was actually at a loss to try out the proposed solution. That's why it took so long to respond. I will keep this in mind next I see this 'un-commanded' location show up. Thanks!

It looks like all of those drives are mapped drives to a local or network share.

As @Run5k mention you can open a command prompt and type net use which will list all the network shares accessed including your mapped drives.

However, if it is a local share in File Explorer, right-click on the "d2" folder and select Properties. Under the General tab you should see a Target field which tells you the address of the share. Screenshot

Also if you want to check which credentials were used to access the network share, then you can use the Credential Manager (under Control Panel\User Accounts\Credential Manager), select Windows Credentials and look through the list for an entry matching the hostname of the share.

  • Thanks for your input as well, please note my comment above.
