Desktop shortcuts for mapped drives disappearing
Posted on 2014-04-14
We have a user on Windows 7 that is experiencing missing desktop icons randomly (just for folders in mapped drives). They will go to lunch and when they return all the shortcuts that they had created on their desktop will no longer be there. All other icons and settings are unchanged. We checked the recycle bin, checked if it was using a temp profile, checked the event viewer - all without success.
This happens about once a week and they have to recreate them manually to get back.
