Map Network Drives or Shared Folders with Group Policy

Wondering how to map network drives or shared folders with Group Policy? We can help you.

We can use Group Policies to map shared network folders flexibly from SMB file servers as separate Windows network drives. Initially, .bat logon scripts containing ‘net use M: \\ro-fs01\sharename’ commands were used to map network drives in Windows.
