Show mapped network drives in computer inventory
Would love to have a way to see the mapped network drives for each system in the inventory. We use the inventory when it comes time to replace computer systems and right now we have to call individuals to find out what mapped network drives they have and what mapped network printers they have. This requires us to explain in a lot of cases where to go to look and the network path. It is something we would use on a daily basis.
This was added to the development backlog. We encourage others to vote as we use this input for prioritizing our release plans.
I had not realized I missed our old Discovery application until I needed to know if a user mapping was set as it is supposed to be to debug an odd issue.

I hope this is prioritised for a future release. There are workarounds available to achieve this but this should be a native feature.
we need this feature

Old thread I know....
This Cust Inv Rule would show the path that is Mapped to the drive letter "Z"
I made a bunch to cover F thru Z, this way I can name the rule as to the drive letter it is checking and output is nice and friendly.
1) Cust Inv - Network share Z:: \\our.domain\dept\Shares\Business Administration [string]

Could you give an example on how to do this with a custom inventory rule?

How about using a custom inventory rule? This command will list all drives:
Get-psdrive -psprovider filesystem
