GPO For Map Drives Which is the best practice to use: UPDATE or REPLACE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Support

    Currently in my infra GPO is created for Mapped Drives from File Server
    with REPLACE Option. 2 Years back migrated to File Server from Different IP Address

    <figure style="box-sizing:border-box;margin:0px;"></figure>

    What is the best practice to use Map Drives UPDATE or REPLACE.

    Few users are getting issue when they opened Windows Explorer from Map Drives. Windows Explorer Automatically Closed.

    What could be a reason?

    Only particular location users only facing it.

    Please advise- Thanks

  • HI

    Replace -Deletes the map drive and re-map the drive

    Update -Update the settings of already mapped drive

    Therefore these settings are totally depends upon your requirement.

    For crashing windows explorer there are below possibilities:

    1. Path mapped is in-accessible or have latency issues

    2. Check proxy settings in IE
