Problem : automatically reconnect mapped drives at login
I have a small issue, more of an annoyance, getting my mapped drives to be automatically connected during login.
I have 4 NAS folders that I have mapped as drives P,Q,R and S. When I first set them up, I specifically set it up such that they will be connected during login. It seems to be doing this, but there seems to be an issue with the credentials.
Below is an image of what I see when I open up Explorer immediately after login -the 4 mapped drives are shown as not connected. When I select one of them, I am prompted to provide my user name and password (these are the NAS user names and passwords I setup, and not the Windows login user name and password).
If I supply the requested information, then the drives are connected. However, despite me putting tick in the "Remember my credentials", it doesn't seem to do this - every time I reboot or restart, I have to manually connect at least one drive to see it, plus the remaining 3 drives. My NAS is a Thecus N2200.
What have I missed? How do I get "Remember my credentials" to actually remember?

I have had many issues like this with NAS devices. Here are a few options:
1) Write a Command Script to remap them, add to desktop or in startup. (i.e.):
@echo off net use q: \\nas\share1 /u:user@workgroup pa$$word net use s: \\nas\share1 /u:user@workgroup pa$$word
2) Make sure that your NAS is part of the same workgroup. Sometimes they are different or not set the same Windows will not remember the credentials.
3) Try using user@domain format and see if that will make it remember the credentials.
(i.e. user@workgroup <tab> pa$$word)
I hope that helps. -WS
