Today I was trying to map a network drive on my computer. I right-clicked the folder and selected Map Network Drive. After selecting the drive letter I wanted, I clicked OK and got the following error message.

The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred:

Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again.

Clicking OK yielded another error.

The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password. To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share.

Hmm. I didnĘt think I had any mapped drives. I checked My Computer. Nope, no mapped drives there. I then went to Start > Run and typed net use. I had a mapping showing there, but it wasnĘt assigned a drive letter. I had to delete the resource using the command

net use /delete \\servername\foldername

I tried to map the drive, and it worked! Amazing how you still need DOS to figure things out easily sometimes.
