Run("C:\windows\explorer.exe") ; Will run Explorer
ProcessClose("Explorer.exe") ; Kills Explorer
Sleep(1000)    ; Sleeps for 1 second

That is NOT a script you should run... It just has a few functions you will need to research to accomplish your task. Always remember, people who reply to your posts, will often put about as much effort into answering, as you did asking... :)

You don't just 'delete' a drive letter... :)

What is drive X: currently? A drive that was already mapped? If so... Here are some more functions for you to look at...

DriveMapDel("X:") ; Un-maps drive X:
DriveMapAdd ( "X:", "\\servername\share" , 0 , "User" , "Password") ;Adds a map to drive 'X', to \\servername\share using "user" as the username, and "password" as the pass

You see '0' in the above "DriveMapAdd" function? It can be replaced, as defined below...

[FLAGS]

A combination of the following:

0 = default

1 = Persistent mapping

8 = Show authentication dialog if required

No offense, but your clearly not using the AutoIt help file, nor Forum search. Utilize both, or expect no answers. That's not saying someone extremely bored (like me) will not answer, but it slims your chances down... :)
