Drives Mapped Through Group Policy not always showing

Occasionally some of our network users are not seeing their mapped drives.  The drives are mapped through group policy.  The security permission are correct, but they aren't seeing the mapping.  Sometimes logging out and back in will fix it.  Sometimes not.  
I have a lot to learn about group policy, but I was wondering about the hide/show setting.  It is currently set to "no change."  If I set it to "show" could it fix this problem?  Would it have any negative consequences?
Thanks!

you should indeed check the "show this drive" option to enable it finally.  No bad consequences as far as i can see...

There is also a setting to reconnect, which makes the drive mapping persistent.
