    Mapped Drives Wont reconnect at Login


    Never had a problem with this before on Win 7, just used to click the reconnect at Login and it worked every time. Now every time I switch off I get error message can't map network drives. Are there other steps im missing in windows 8. I tried to create a BAT file to run in startup folder but i must not being doing it correctly as it's not working.

    This problem has been plaguing Windows systems for a very long time now. There are countless threads at TechNet discussing this ongoing problem with no clear resolution. And you will see a bunch more threads to the right of the screen there at TechNet.

    Take your pick on which fix will actually work.
