Windows 7 - How do you remove a disconnected network drive from file explorer?

I have a number of (disconnected) mapped drives that i used on an old NAS that I want to remove. I have tried right clicking -> disconnect and <tools> -> <disconnect network drive> but none will make them disappear.

Any help?


1.      What happens when you try to remove it?

2.      Do you receive any error message?


I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.

a.      Click Start Button, select All Programs.

b.      Click Accessories.

c.       Right-click on Command Prompt and then click Run as Administrator.

d.      Type the “net use Z: /delete” in command prompt and hit enter.

Note: Here Z: is the actual drive letter of the network drive, which you want to remove from your computer.
