Windows 7: Network Drives

25 Jan 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit
Network Drives


Is there a simple way to connect certain network dirves when the user logs on.

I have used the lusrmgr.msc to create a home drive for the user, but i need another one to load upon log on.

Is there anything you could recommend?

I am not using a domina environment.

windows 7 enterprise 32bit

how many machines are we talking about ?

if it's not many then you could just put a batch/cmd script into the ALL USERS/START MENU/PROGRAMS/STARTUP folder.

if you have many it can become a bit of a pig to administer after you have implemented and decide a change is required. You could also play around with a login script that is stored on a central repository.

a command script is simply dos commands packaged up in a file that the computer knows to execute.

a simple way of producing one is;

open notepad.
enter a command, such as ;
net use * \\SERVER\SHARE

then save the file as a *.cmd (remember to change the type of the file to ALL!!)
