Mapped network drives, slower boot time
Long story short, I have shares on three PCs that are not always on. If I make a shortcut to the share and put it on my desktop, sometimes for some reason, the shortcut vanishes. I believe this is because I haven't connected the PC to the network in a while.
So, I went about and mapped those shares to drive letters. All is well, however, it adds another 45 seconds to my boot time.
Pretty sure this is because windows is trying to reconnect to them on boot, but they are disconnected. Is there any way to keep my drive mappings, but not have windows attempt to reconnect on boot?
I know that you will lose your mappings if you do not check "reconnect on login".. so, is there a way to keep the mappings without attempting to reconnect at login?

FWIW: I create a batch file, once I have mapped all the drives that I want to. not checking the connect at logon
and then from the cmd prompt.
net use >redo.bat
Then I edit the redo.bat file changing the appropriate lines to show map drive letter and network share
This way I can execute the batch file which I can place on my desktop and execute when I wish..
the persistent:no is like saying don't reconnect at logon.
you can figure out what all the net use commands are by typing net use /?
Hope this helps
