      Is there a downfall to using Replace instead of Update when drive mapping via GPO, I currently have a mix of Update and Replace using item level targeting with success, but on some computers the users are getting the drive maps with red”s X’s, which appeared after I introduced the item level targeting to the drive mappings using Replace, so I’m wondering if I need to change the Replace to Update as the extra step as part of the Replace function of deleting the mapping and then re-mapping it, is causing some lagging.

      Here is a more comprehensive and more technical explanation about what each action does.
      Maybe this can help you to decide if you really need the Replace action or if Update is enough…

        Thank you Luc, this is the level that I was looking for, looks like update is the way to go.
