Windows 7: Possible to map network drive without attempting to mount at login?

Possible to map network drive without attempting to mount at login?

Basically I have my tablet mapped to Z: for quick access whenever it and my computer or on wifi. Problem is, i don't leave my tablet on, so on login my computer complains that it can't find the drive. but once I turn on my tablet I can just click on the drive and it connects and mounts no problem.

Is there any way to suppress that alert?

Thanks.

When mapping the drive, did you tick the option "connect again at login"? I guess so.
A quick and dirty way might be not using that option at all, and map the drive manually each time you connect, possibly with a shortcut or bat file so it's easier.

How about a batch file to map the tablet as a drive when you need it?

net use <drive letter><network path> /persistent:no

Substitute the desired drive letter for <drive letter> and the \\computername\sharename for <network path>

Here's all the parameters from that command:

Code:
C:\>net use /?
The syntax of this command is:

NET USE
[devicename | *] [\\computername\sharename[\volume] [password | *]]
        [/USER:[domainname\]username]
        [/USER:[dotted domain name\]username]
        [/USER:[username@dotted domain name]
        [/SMARTCARD]
        [/SAVECRED]
        [[/DELETE] | [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]]

NET USE {devicename | *} [password | *] /HOME

NET USE [/PERSISTENT:{YES | NO}]
