256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows Registry
If you disconnect and then reconnect to a different share by using the same drive letter after you map a network drive by letter in Windows Explorer, the share label displays the previous share name in Windows Explorer.
Note that the contents that are displayed are correct for the remote drive, but the label is incorrect.
This behavior can occur if the Windows Explorer DesktopProcess registry value is set to 1.
WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.
To resolve this behavior, delete the DesktopProcess value from the following registry key:
Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 1, Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 2, Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 1, Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 2, Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a, Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0 Developer Edition
