    Win8 Drive Mappings


    Anyone experiencing problems with mapping drives via group policy preferences? I've been doing some testing and the drives just wont appear on my W8 pc. W7 machines seems to get their drives mapped as should.

    The event viewer just tells me:
    The Group Policy settings for the user were processed successfully. New settings from 3 Group Policy objects were detected and applied.

    The policy seems to come trough, I'm using "replace" in gpp. It actually removes the manually mapped drives, but wont map the new ones. Tested also without firewall, no effect.

I've been using Win8 CP for about 3 months now, and I'm a bit shocked that my 100Gb partition is almost full. Take note that I have a separate partition for multimedia files other than for OS. I'm also running Win7 on a separate drive and so far it has only taken up around 40+Gb in a span of a...
