A mapped network drive question?

By jfuller05 ·
I use Genie Backup and have it on a network drive separate from the server (using Windows server 200. When you log on to the server, you can see the Genie backup drive as a mapped network drive in My Computer. Sometimes,the drive disconnects from the network and you have to log into the Genie drive for it to reconnect(username and password). I read that there is a default timeout of typically 15 minutes and then Windows Server will drop the connection to free up resources. My question, I guess, is there a way to have an always established connection the drive?

command line

Create a batch file with this command in it, and place it in the Startup folder of the machine(s) you wish to map on startup.

Go to command prompt and type
net use /? for the full syntax and options.
