GPO Drive Map not Working

A drive set to map via GPO on a Windows 7 system was not working.

Application event log had error id: 4098. “……. The network path was not found”.

This was fixed by changing the share path in the GPO from \\servername\share\ to \\servername\share

Note the \ (backslash) is removed from the end.

Lenovo Fingerprint Reader not Working Windows 7

On my new Lenovo T520 laptop, the fingerprint reader was not working at logon, or if the system was locked. I had already registered some fingerprints in the lenovo software.

To get this working I had to go into control panel > Biometric Devices > Change Biometric Settings > Ensure “Biometrics on” radio button is selected > Tick “Allow users to log on to Windows using their fingerprints” and what fixed it for me “Allow users to log on to a domain using their fingerprints” > Save Changes
