Windows 7: Problems with connecting to Networkdrives

Problems with connecting to Networkdrives


A have several PC's and a NAS to share data.

I have mapped 2 shares on the NAS and all PC's can access them, read/write etc.

The problem is every time I boot and windows 7 starts up, I get the error "could not connect to all network drives". If I after a few seconds go to "my computer" I can access the drives ok.

I suspect windows to start the "connect check" before the networking service is 100% up and running. I have tried to make a small batch file with 2 "net use" commands, but even with that running from the startup folder I get the error in most cases, but not all.

Most of my apps will see the shares as not connected if I not manually access them at start up, and that can be a pain. :-)

Does anybody know a way / setting to correct this?

Odd, I've never gotten this error on startup. Do you have any startup programs that pull data from these shares?
