Drive Mappings Disappearing

By geraldine_campbell ·
Can anyone tell me why drive mappings disappear on Windows NT 4.0. Also we have Windows 98 laptop users who loses their drive mappings too. What can cause this to happen.

Thanks,
Gerri

I have had this happen. We use windows scripting host and for what ever reason it just stops working. I just reinstall scripting host and it work fine.

I recently (past 30 days) in one of the weekly computer magazines read about a site that had the same problem for some 6 months. The Network Manager even had a Microsoft Engineer working with him for awhile. Then he finally found out (but not fromMicrosoft) that it was a Win NT bug and a fix was going to be available. I experienced similar disappearances on my NT and UNIX network at my previous job and we never could determine the cause. Best of luck.

We have had the same problem with NT, where the network links disconnect themselves if they are not used for a certain period of time. Although we have not determined the cause, we have just created a batch file that relinks the drives for now.

When you map the driver make sure that you login as a domain user, and click the box labled "connect to driver when the next time you logon". Next time you should still log on as a domain user account. Then you will not lose the drivers unless you are not connected properly to the server.

Don't you use mandatory profiles with no mappings defined? It prevents reconnecting mappings at logon...
