Windows 7 - Can't see drives from cmd prompt.

February 21, 2011 at 11:19:11
Specs: Windows 7
Here is my situation. I am working remotely and connecting to my work place through a VPN connection. Once I get connected to the VPN server I can re-connect to two network drives at my job. Through windows explorer I can access these network drives without any issues, however I am having problems getting to these same network drives from the command prompt. FSUTIL only shows my local and cdrom drives. If I try to cd to one of the network drives it just states that "The system cannot find the drive specified". I have tried "cd F:\, F:, and cd /D F:\" and all give me the same error.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

I apologize for the post and then such a quick answer. I had been working on this for hours (I'm a UNIX guy not a windows guy). A co-worker gave me this info that appears to have worked.

Net use j: /delete
Net use j: \\servername\sharename /persistent:yes
