Windows 7: Mapped Drive UPmapped , still showing in Explorer

Mapped Drive UPmapped , still showing in Explorer

I had a share mapped, it got the little red X on it so I said unmap this drive, it did, but Explorer still shows it there, when I right click on it to remove it tells me it is not there.
I know it is not there, but it still shows that it is.

It is a PITA, but not a real serious issue, however I would like to know how to rid myself of it.

Windoze Professional 7 64 bit. 8 GB

Hello Danny, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if refreshing (F5) the window may help. If not, then you might see if logging out/in or restarting the computer may.

Yes, I tried F5, no it did nothing.

So are you saying there is no way to correct this short of rebooting this computer?

I was hoping for something a little more imaginative, something I could not come up with on my own.

Well, thanks for sharing your knowledge.

You could try to log out and log in as posted above or restart explorer instead of restarting the computer.

Logging out is just as problematic for me as I have several iSeries sessions active with job(s) running in each and restarting Explorer seems to have zero effect on the drive mapped to the IFS on one of the iSeries.

Thanks for your efforts.

Hopefully someone may know of a way other than restarting the computer when you're able.
