Still got problems with activating mapped drive on startup

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I still seem to have problems with activating a mapped drive when I login

I have a backup program created in AutoIT that runs on startup but for some reason the backup will not proceed unless I manually open the mapped drive.

Once I open the mapped drive it seems to connect itself.

Does anyone know what I can do as it's driving me crazy.

Thanks

Sounds like your drive is mapped but doesn't connect until you reference it. I know it is a setting somewhere you can change to fix this....

....Looked, and I can't find where I saw this and the fix last time, but you may be able to do the following with a batch file in startup. This is from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308582

Use the Net Use command to map or disconnect a drive

You can use the net use command for batch files and scripts. To use the net use command to map or disconnect a drive:

To map a network drive:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type cmd.

3. Type net use x: \\computer name\share name, where x: is the drive letter you want to assign to the shared resource.

To disconnect a mapped drive:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type cmd.

3. Type net use x: /delete, where x: is the drive letter of the shared resource.
