Thanks Leslie.
I have opened Paradox and I have used the Cmd etc. and it shows the 
Mapped Drives are there and marks them as 'ok'. They come under my Users 
area on the machine? The Mapped Drives are though showing as running in 
the root 'C:\' drive itself so I'm not sure how to change what is 
reported! Any further suggestions please?
