I want to delete a network drive because it is taking up to 96% of space. It displays "Disconnected Network Drive". If I press double-click on it, the drive opens properly to the network share. But when I try to disconnect the drive, it displays an error message that "The network connection could not be found". And when I try to re-map the drive, it displays "The local device name is already in use". Now, how can I delete the drive? Please help me out.

In order to remove the network drive, you need to follow these steps.

  1. Go to My Computer.
  2. Make a right-click on it.
  3. You will find an option for Disconnect Network Device .
