Special Drive Mapping Logic

NOTE: Don't enable this setting unless you need this specific functionality.

Enable this setting to activate a special drive mapping logic that can solve drive mapping issues in certain scenarios. The most common scenario is when users are local administrator and User Account Control (UAC) has been enabled. In this case a user has a split security token and drive mappings will not show up in Explorer. Enabling this setting solves this issue.

NOTE: On Windows 8 and newer, this logic may not work for administrators with a split token.

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
