issue with mapping one drive folders and losing connection

HI, I have two pc's that I have 3 folders mapped in explorer, I linked them by using, add network location instead of mapping a network drive. I found the mapped network drive inconstant.

my issue is that the mapped folders tend to lose the security between the pc and one drive. I've read that it randomly times out,
to resolve it, we go into one drive on the browser and open explorer via the ribbon tab on one drive, this then works for x amount of hours/days.

is there a solution to have it permanently connected

we are using office 365 and windows 7 pro

The bottom line is, the user needs to periodically refresh the token. There are some 3rd party tools that can automate this, but none of them are supported by Microsoft. If you are interested in such tools, look at the comments section below this article:
