How do I really disconnect from a network share in Windows 8.1?
I'm familiar with using
net use to disconnect from a network share, even if it isn't mapped to a network drive letter:
net use \\server\share /del
However, even after doing so, the folder may remain connected: if I quickly open Windows Explorer and go to \server\share, it connects immediately, without prompting me for a password, and I can do whatever file operations I want in that folder without it ever showing up again in
net use's output.
If I use
net use /del then leave things alone for 10-15 seconds, then the share appears to really disconnect, so that Windows Explorer prompts for password and takes time to reconnect and so on.
I'm not sure that this is a duplicate of this question; that makes it sound like
net use sometimes fails, while my issue is that it appears to work but leaves connections open that it can't see.
Is there a way to really, truly close network share connections, besides
net use? Is there a way to see what connections are open that
net use isn't telling me about?
