Map drive keeps removing itself

I have a map drive to the server and every morning it is gone. I have 4 other map drives and all are still there. Is there a simple reason for this.
Thank you.

Are you manually mapping these drives or are you mapping them via a login script?

Are you using the "/persistent:yes" switch when mapping your drives?

When you say that you have 4 other mapped drives, and they are all fine, are these mapped drives all on the SAME PC or different PCs?

All on same PC and mapped to the same server.

I assume that this PC is a Windows XP PC?
The only thing I can think of, off the top of my head (but it's unlikely given that 4 of them are fine), is that you're missing the 'Re-connect at logon' tick option, when you initially create the link.  Definitely without that, you WILL lose the link.
What type of server is it?

It is windows 2012R2 and it is a widows 10 pc.

When you map a drive via the command line you have to use the "/persistent:yes" to have it reappear at next logon or it may not appear.

The command is
  • net use X: \\server\share /persistent:yes

If you use "/persistent:no" the drive will not reappear.

From the GUI it is the same as making your you have the checkbox "reconnect at login" enabled or the drive will not re-appear.

Look at your group policy settings and change from Update to Replace.

So it WAS the "Re-connect at logon" option then?
