JSI Tip 8653. Windows 2000 Explorer displays 'Network Drive' instead of '<Share Name> on <Computer Name>'?

The subject behavior will occur if RunAs was used to map the drive with different credentials than the logged on user, and the RunAs user is no longer logged on.

NOTE: In Windows XP and later, a locally unique identifier holds the network drive information, so the subject behavior does NOT occur.
