From time to time, I have been unable to connect to the UNC path of a network share. The error message I get is:
This usually happens when I am remotely connected to another user’s computer. The message is straight-forward enough; so, too, is the solution. You simply need to disconnect from the share. Here’s how:
- Open a command line window
- Enter the command
- Find the mapped path in the resulting list
net use \\server\path /delete
That’s going to take care of it, and you should now be able to map the share as you normally would.
