    Hi,

    When a user on Windows 7 set up his WebDisk with the vbs file he downloaded from cPanel, it added a location to his "Network" section in the Windows file manager (Explorer). The user no longer wishes to use WebDisk (he says it's too slow), but he can't remove the entry.

    host.server.com@SSL@2078

    When he opens "Network" and right clicks his WebDisk, there is no option to delete, disconnect, etc. The only options he has are:
    • Open
    • Open in new window
    • Connect with Remote Desktop connection
    • Pin to Start Menu
    • Create Shortcut


    -----

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hello :)

    Is it listed under "Network Location" when you open up the "Computer" window? If so, you should be able to right click the network drive and disconnect/delete it.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the response! In Windows 7 it is no longer called "Network Location", it is called "Network". He says when he right-clicks host.server.com@SSL@2078 in "Network" his only choices are "Open", "Open in new window", "Connect with Remote Desktop connection", "Pin to Start Menu", and "Create Shortcut".

    It seems the link to the webdisk under "Network" has been hard-coded by the vbs file from cPanel.
