Windows 7 Professional not automatically loading mapped drives
Posted on 2012-09-12
I am new to Windows 7. I July I was able to upgrade my server to a 2008 Enterprise. I now have 11 new Windows 7 Professional machines, and I still have about 70 Windows XP Professional machines. I am having issues with at least 2 of the Windows 7 not automatically reconnecting the network drives on startup/login. I set up the machines on my bench with no issues at all, then when I installed for the user(s), the machine would give an error that it could not reconnect to all network drives, even though I am able to see information on that server AND get on the internet. It also doesn't load all the task bar information. I was able to get around the mapped drive by putting in a script for those two people.
I get intermittent issues with some of the others but am able to "fix" by unplugging and replugging the network cable then restarting. But I hope the intermittent don't become constant like the other 2.
How can I fix this? it is very irritating, especially when the XP machines I took out never had any issues at all.
Thank you in advance,
