The Network folder specified is currently mapped

If you try to map a network drive and an error that specifies you are already mapped to the drive but are not, you can try several things.

Run services.msc
Stop the Workstation Service (This in turn will stop the Browser Service)
Restart BOTH services

Try to map the drive

Another fix may be to run the following from a command prompt.

cd \
net use * /d /y
NET USE /persistent:no
nbtstat -R
nbtstat -RR
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
arp -d *
ipconfig /renew

 

This can be put into a batch file as a tool.  Open notepad and copy and paste the following:

net stop workstation
y
net start workstation
net start browser
cd \
net use * /d /y
NET USE /persistent:no
nbtstat -R
nbtstat -RR
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
arp -d *
ipconfig /renew

Save the file as dumpcache.bat (be sure to change the extension to all).

You can now run this in an administrative command prompt window.
