Mapping a drive that is already mapped

I often get the error that “The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password”. The mapped drive does not show up under the current profile, so I cannot disconnect in the file manager. I receive this error message even though Explorer does not show that the server or share is mapped at all. I finally looked this up and found this helpful suggestion:

If you use “net use” from a cmd prompt, you can see all of the drives that are connected, even the ones that do not show in Windows. Use “net use /delete \\server\share” to remove the connection.

I found this information at:
