Mapped network drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to map network drives permanently? The mapped drives are not connected until I click on them in the Explorer.

  • It's a known bug in Windows 7/Vista: http://neosmart.net/blog/2010/the-woes-of-windows-vista7-mapped-network-drives/ Hope they fix it for Windows 8. To tackle this issue, use the MapDrive utility from here: http://zornsoftware.talsit.info/?p=129

  • Dear Marilyn,

    I'm a member of MSDN, but I reinstalled Windows 7, because I had many problems with WDP. It seems my Z68 (Gigabyte) motherboard is not ready for Win8. Or vice versa...? ;-)
