To mount a network drive from the cmd prompt on windows I can do, for example:

net use z: \\vboxsvr\somedrive

How would I disconnect it from the cmd prompt?

net use z: /delete

    "net use z: /d" will also work and save a few keystrokes as well... – user48838 Oct 14 '10 at 1:27

Ignacio answered the immediate problem, but one hint: There is a /help parameter for any subprogram of the net command. So, net use /help shows you everything you need to know for connecting to network resources, and with net /help you get an overview of the complete program.

    Also: Google, which is what I used to find the answer. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 13 '10 at 17:22

    for some reason i didn't know how to google this one. i assumed it would be "net unuse" or "net remove" or something. but "net remove windows" gave not so good results – Claudiu Oct 13 '10 at 18:17
  • +1 It's always good to show how to find the answer for themselves. – John Gardeniers Oct 14 '10 at 0:24
