Win 95 drive mapping problem

By brian ·
While attached to our network, one of my laptop users (Windows 95) automatically maps to a network folder on boot up.

When away from the network, the auto mapping fails of course and displays a dialog box allowing her to state: connect next time.

However, her computer (Compaq ) does not accept this command and continually pops up the same dialog box every few minutes which is very annoying.

Is there a work-around for this?

There should be another setting for attempt to reconnect which you'll need to shut off. The servers I'm on can go down and my system will reconnect automatically, are you NT or Novell?

Hi,
You can put in startup folder a batch file like this:

net use x: \\ComputerName\ShareName /persistent:no

Of course will fail without a network but don't annoying the user (and disconnect previous maps).
