Windows 7: Network Drive not Connecting on boot

Network Drive not Connecting on boot

Hello all.

I have several network drives from my nas mapped to my pc.

When ever I start my pc I get a message saying could not connect to all network drives.

If I open My computer the drives have a big red X on them, if I select one of the drives I can access it straight away without entering any credentionals.

I need them to connect automatically as this pc is used as a HTPC and all my meda is on my mapped drives.

Cheers.

Tom.

Just to make sure I set it up correctly here is the path.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControl/Control/NetworkProvider

Name: RestoreConnection
Value: Reg_Dword, Hexidecimal, 1

Disconnect your mapped drives and then re-map.
