persistent network drive mappings not very persistent


#1
I've set up two drive mappings on my Windows 8 machine to my NAS machine but they never stay when I reboot.
When I reboot or start my machine, the drive mappings show a red "X" beside them in Explorer, but when I just single click on them they open up as you would expect them to. From that point on, everything is good... until I reboot again.
I should mention that I also always get the yellow pop-up message (bottom left side) that says "Could not reconnect all network drives".

Until I manually click on the drives in Windows Explorer, my favorites won't show up in IE since I have my favorites located on one of the mapped drives (on my NAS). As soone as I click on the drive(s) in Windows Explorer, the favorites immediately show up in IE.
I've set them up using UNC and IP addresses (ie: \\192.168.0.100\sharename
So far, nothing 'sticks' and I can't seem to find an answer on the net.
Many suggestions seem to think the OS is trying to load the mapped drives before the network stuff is loaded. Since I'm booting from a SSD drive (8 seconds to boot up! yes!) then this makes sense.
I've also tried a net use command in the registry run to manually connect the shares each boot, but that gives me the same result.

Anyone have any ideas?

Unfortunately, this didn't help me. Most of the article appears to be XP oriented so some suggestions or steps weren't able to do in Windows 8.
I've even tried setting up a drive mapping in the run part of the registry, no good there either.

I find it odd that when I restart and see the red X's next to the drive mappings that just a click restores them.
Until then my IE Favorites are blank since they reside on a folder on my NAS but as soon as I click the mapped connection, my favorites are there.

Frustrating. I set up the same exact drive mappings under a Windows 7 machine and they are persistent and always ready to go on boot up.

Happens here too.....it's almost like Win8 has tried checking the connections BEFORE being fully logged/connected into the network , connects the mapped drives later on and then forgets to update the GUI in the window....

There are some commands to delay the drive mapping until after Windows connects, the link below shows you how to set the delay.

I thought about something like this but I'd sure hate to slow down a boot process that I'm proud of (8-10 seconds)!
Maybe if I figure out a way for the net use command to run quietly (or at least minimized), that won't be such an annoying reminder.
Thanks for the input.

It doesn't actually slow down the machine from booting, it only delays the drive mapping until after Windows is connected.

OK, I tried this and it really didn't make any difference.
I set it up for a 7 second delay and the script ran but the red X's were still by the drive mappings.
I've got a batch file set up that I can manually run and it works most of the time a few seconds after I've booted up but I've noticed that it is more successful around a minute after I'm booted up.
I'm really thinking it has more to do with what is available in the way of networking abilities at the time the mapping is requested.

I've also tried putting the batch file set to run in the run part of the registry, same thing, it must be running the batch file quicker than when networking is available.
I've even modified the batch file to change to that drive and do a 'dir' command thinking that some type of activity might make it connect quickly at that point, but that doesn't seem to make much if any difference.

One thing I just though of trying is a mapping to another windows machine instead of my NAS to see if there is a difference in how quick that drive mapping is available.

If anyone thinks of anything, please let me know.

Try using a delay longer than 7 seconds, that isn't enough.

I actually used one for 1 minute (sorry, forgot to mention) but even if that work (it didn't), that would be too long to 'wait' for a drive mapping in Windows 8 that was immediate after boot in Windows 7.

Ok try the fix mentioned in the following link, not sure if this relates to your exact problem or not.

I actually saw that post somewhere before but disregarded it since I always want a permanent connection upon reboot. Besides, I'm not on a domain, I'm in a workgroup, so I couldn't do the gpupdate anyway.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

unfortunately, I tried that hotfix last week and it turns out I already had this hotfix installed, so, no go for me.
Thanks for the suggestion/lead though.

Apparently the lanman server settings have an effect on this. These same setting are used to gain access to older SMB and Windows server's but apparently has an effect on persistent drive mappings.

If that doesn't work try adding the credentials manually.

1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
2. Click Credential Manager.
3. Click Add a Windows credential.
4. Within the Resource field, type in the name of the resource (such as the computer name) or the URL of the Web site you want to access.

Yes, I realize I do and assume that this is not available in regular Windows 8. Damn MS.
Is there another way I can maybe do this via the registry?
This drive mapping issue is so annoying and utter nonsense that I have to deal with it.

Under administrative tools, I don't see a local security policy for my Windows 8.
Do you have the Windows 8 non pro version for some reason?
Yes, I realize I do and assume that this is not available in regular Windows 8. Damn MS.
Is there another way I can maybe do this via the registry?
This drive mapping issue is so annoying and utter nonsense that I have to deal with it.
Yes no Local Security Policy with the Home version of Windows 8.

I do have the Windows 7 registry settings which relate to the lanman server settings although I don't believe these have the same effect in Windows 8 but maybe worth a try.

Type in ‘regedit’ and press OK.
Search for the following location:
HTML:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\
Double click on 'everyoneincludesanonymous' and change the value data to 1.

Double click on ‘NoLmHash’ and change the value data to 0.

Search for the following location:
HTML:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Parameters\
Double click on ‘restrictnullsessaccess’ and change the value data to 0.

Close the register editor.
Restart your PC.

Wow, that looked so promising, but unfortunately it made no difference.
I even removed the prior drive mappings, wiped windows credentials and re-established drive mapping, rebooted, etc.
Arggggghhhhh. Why is something that I should be taking for granted such a pain.

Thanks for your suggestion though. I'm still looking/researching and trying what I can.
