Windows 7: Can't Reconnet Network Drives

Can't Reconnet Network Drives

I'm having an issue reconnecting my network drives on my HP laptop running Windows 7.

I have a Thecus N4100 Pro NAS. I've mapped the drives with the option to reconnect at start up. I've put in my credentials and clicked the option to save credentials. However, when I reboot, I see the error, "Unable to reconnect network drives."

When I go to my Computer, I can see the drives and they are disconnected.

When I double click them, the credentials login screen comes up. I put in the same credentials I did as when I created them, select the option to save the credentials, and they do reconnect. They stay until I reboot the laptop and they go away again.

I've followed the same procedure on my desktop and the links work fine, even after a reboot.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

This has been a Problem with Windows 7, it in my opinion does not connect the drives unless the server is up and running

Unless the server is up and running?

My NAS is always up and running.

Not sure I understand.

By server i mean that whether the other computer you are mapping the drives is, YES i MEAN NAS

Are you mapping to a specific folder on the NAS device? or simply to a drive?

Mapping to drives on the NAS.

net use * /delete those drive mappings. Reboot, map 'Folders' with "everyone" group with modify rights on the 'folder'. [x] check reconnect at log on. Reboot. See if that helps first... then we'll work on the drives.
