Windows 7 mapped drives lost when not on network
Posted on 2012-09-15
I have a 2008R2 domain with Windows 7 computers. Have setup a logon script that maps certain drives when a user logs on. As long as the user is connected to the network and logs onto the domain they get their mapped drives. But if they go mobile and are not connected to the network they lose their mapped drives. Drives that have been manually mapped still show up but those that are done thru the logon script do not. This is a problem when they are mobile and connect to our network with a VPN and cannot access the drives they need.
Is there a way of keeping the mapped drives whether they are on the network or not?
Thanks for any suggestions
