Windows 7: Disconnect network drive automatically

Disconnect network drive automatically

I am looking for a way to disconnect a network drive automatically every night. I only need this to happen on 1 PC.

More detail:
- I have a Drobo B800FS-4A that I share with people during the day from a single PC.
- My setup is Win7x64 and I password protect the Drobo
- I want it to require a login every day
- This is the tough part: I want it to automatically disconnect at night

Is there some sort of setting or tool that will help me accomplish this?

Thanks,
David Shipp

Remove it via a cmd file run as a task scheduler at the time you want

That sounds like a great solution but I'm not familiar with DOS... Can you share the DOS entries?

Very simple

Net share sharename /delete

Replace share name with the name of the share
