Windows 7: Drive share lost after restart.

Drive share lost after restart.

I use a Drobo and I used to have it map on My host PC using letter I: but since it was causing drive letter conflicts I changed the drive letter to Z:.

Ever since I did that my Drobo will lose its drive share every time restart. I can share it back out and it retains the individual folder shares I set up. But this was never and issue before.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to make a drive letter a permanent share or make a startup script to share the drive letter?

Thanks.

You can write a batch file to use the net share command then launch it at boot.
Code:
>net share /?
The syntax of this command is:

NET SHARE
sharename
          sharename=drive:path [/GRANT:user,[READ | CHANGE | FULL]]
                               [/USERS:number | /UNLIMITED]
                               [/REMARK:"text"]
                               [/CACHE:Manual | Documents| Programs | BranchCache | None]
          sharename [/USERS:number | /UNLIMITED]
                    [/REMARK:"text"]
                    [/CACHE:Manual | Documents | Programs | BranchCache | None]
          {sharename | devicename | drive:path} /DELETE
          sharename \\computername /DELETE

I will give that a shot. I just don't get why all of a sudden it stopped saving my drive share.

Try a letter other than Z, see what happens?
