I ran this command in elevated cmd (win 10):

wmic path Win32_Share delete

I was trying to do something else. Now I can't map network drives. How can I undo the change?


These are not regular changes so may be difficult to recover from. Try the following:


(1) Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.

(2) DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /StartComponentCleanup

(3) DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth


(5) Restart when all the above is complete and test.

2. Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new account and test Mapping a Folder. Your user profile may be damaged.

3. Windows Repair Install If the profile appears OK, and step 1 did not yield results, do a Windows 10 Repair Install


Windows 10 is running, so click on the Download button (not Upgrade Button) and select Run. If the Repair will not run as per above, use the Download button to create a USB Windows Installation key, then run Setup on the USB Key.

This will launch the Repair and proceed normally. Use the option to Keep Everything.

4. If all the above fails, back up everything and reinstall Windows 10.
