    Try Unmapping Network Drive From Command Line

    net use

    This will show all Mapped Network Drives on Network

    net use x: /delete

    where x is the name of the Network mapped drive of computer system . Now
    when you delete this drive make sure that this drive will not shown on
    computer.

    If , still the mapped drive is not mapped then try following command

    net use 192.168.10.11\workfiles /delete
