Find Where Your Network Drives Map to

November 27th, 2014 - IT(1 min)

The other day I was at home in a somewhat odd situation; I had a VPN connection but I could not, for the life of me, remember the mappings of the network drives from the other side. Also, of course there was no documentation how to do it. A kind soul showed me how to do it in windows.

On your work computer, perform a net use. You should get something like:

C:\Users\laur>net use
New connections will be remembered.

Status       Local     Remote                    Network

              H:        \\\Homes\LAUR
                                                Microsoft Windows Network
              P:        \\\DEPT_1\Public
                                                Microsoft Windows Network
              W:        \\\OUTLOOK\LAUR
                                                Microsoft Windows Network
The command completed successfully.


Now, all you have to do is write down/email/whatever the network paths (like \\\Homes\LAUR) and map them from your home computer.
