Windows 7: Applications - Problem with Mounted network drives

02 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Applications - Problem with Mounted network drives

I have an external drive attached to a networked drive share hardware box, each of the 3 folders on the drive are mounted as drive letters.

I'm not sure what's changed , but recently , even though Windows 7 itself sees the drives as connected and available , ANY application when first run can see the drives as there , but it ALWAYS shows them as disconnected.

I can go and open the 'disconnected' drives using the application(s) and the application will then recognise the drives as connected and available for the rest of the time my PC is switched on...

As soon as I log out or shut down and restart the PC , I'm back to Windows knowing the drives are connected and any application seeing them as disconnected.

The only thing I can think of is I have stopped a service that passes the state of networked drives to applications on my PC.

I hope someone has an idea , it's not a desperate problem , but it's extremely irritating having to get each application to re-recognise the drives as connected every single time I re-boot the system.
