The official term is folder redirection: selecting a non-default
location for e.g. the user profile or the documents folder. The term
mapping means assigning a drive letter to a UNC path. If you type
`net use' in a command prompt then you get to see all these

So what is the output of net use on an affected system?

BTW. If possible, copy-and-paste the text from the command prompt
rather than attaching a screendump.
