Registry key:
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Map Network Drive MRU


The Map Network Drive MRU registry key references the network shares recently used by the associated user. The network share do not have to be persistently mapped to be referenced by the Map Network Drive MRU key.

Information of interest

Each network share is stored in a dedicated value under the Map Network Drive MRU key. The value data contains the UNC path of the network share (such as <IP | HOSTNAME>\<SHARE_NAME>).

The values are ordered in a Most recently used (MRU) list, specified in the MRUList value. Example: MRUList equals to ba means that the entry tagged as b was accessed last / the most recently, preceded by the entry tagged as a.

The last write timestamp of the key indicates the timestamp of the most recently accessed share.
