    To map or disconnect a drive, you can use the net use command for batch files and scripts. To use the net use command to map or disconnect a drive:

    To map a network drive:
    • Click Start >> click Run >> type cmd.
    • Type net use x: \\computer name\share name,
      where x: is the drive letter you want to assign to the shared resource.


    To disconnect a mapped drive:
    • Click Start >> click Run >> type cmd.
    • Type net use x: /delete,
      where x: is the drive letter of the shared resource.

    Don't get confused between the following two commands - NET USE and NET STOP. There is the difference between NET USE
    and NET STOP

    The implementation of NET USE command is already mentioned by Snake08. The NET STOP command is used to control services and has nothing to do with NET USE.

    Disconnect from a mapped network drive

    1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
    2. Right-click the icon for the mapped drive.
    3. Click Disconnect.


    Note : When you disconnect from a mapped drive, you remove the mapped drive letter that you assigned to the shared resource. You can still access the resource from My Network Places.
