    how do I hide a output of a net use /delete

    I have a login script that deletes drive mappings. If the drives are do not
    exist I see a error message. How do I hide the messages?

    I have tried piping output to nul or a file but I still see the error
    message. What am I missing

    c:\net use i: /delete>NUL

    Example
    C:\net use i: /delete
    The network connection could not be found.
    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2250.

    or
    C:\net use i: /delete>NUL
    The network connection could not be found.
    More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2250.

    The short answer is use "2>NUL", like this:
    C:\>net.exe use i: /delete >NUL 2>NUL


    Most programs send their output to the stdout stream, which is
    represented by handle 1, or assumed if not present. So what you were
    doing is the same as this:
    C:\>net.exe use i: /delete 1>NUL


    Some programs separate their output, they send informational messages to
    stdout, and errors to stderr, represented by handle 2.

    You could also stderr (handle 2) to the same place as stdout (handle 1),
    like this:
    C:\>net.exe use i: /delete 1>NUL 2>&1

    Try this:

    net use i: /delete 2>NUL >NUL

    that should redirect both stdout & stderr
