Windows 7: Automatic re-assigning of network share on mounted removable volumes?

Automatic re-assigning of network share on mounted removable volumes?

I have question how to force auto reassign of network shares on mounted filesystems that are not present at login time yet, like flash drive or various mounted filesystems like TrueCrypt volumes.
And that's mostly the case, I have severall truecrypted partitions that use auto mount on logon to windows. I have put a network share on all of them and they can be accessed from outside just like an usual fixed partition. The problem is that when I do a fresh boot and I wait till encrypted volumes are auto-mounted by TrueCrypt service, these volumes behave out from Windows OS like usual drives but don't show the share icon in Explorer anymore. Then if I want all of them being accessible by network again, I have to reassign a network share on them which I find annoying. Even without this the shares seem to appear on them later, upon a certain event or certain time (refresh), but the problem is that I never know when these shares are auto retried.
So probably I'll need to setup an OS level event that would assign existing shares on later mounted volumes, instantly after they're successfully mounted.
Thanks for all working solutions
