    We are set up with a workgroup environment. (Windows 2003 server) Recently we
    created a folder to map to with permissions. Everything seems to work
    perfectly with the exception that that drive disconnects. When we map to
    this drive we use "connect using different user" and click on reconnect at
    log-in. I have been unable to find any setting either on the server or on the
    individual computers that would keep it from disconnecting.

  2. Greetings,

    To ensure I understand the problem correctly, the workstations disconnects
    and does not reconnect a mapped drive when it's logged off/rebooted. If this
    is the case try deleting the mapped drive. Then open your command prompt and
    enter the following command:

    net use X: \\computername\sharename PASSWORD /USER:Domain(or Local Computer
    Name)\UserName /PERSISTANT:yes


    net use P: \\server\public Pa$$w0rd /USER:MyDomain\JohnS /PERSISTANT:yes

    Hope this helps,

  3. Correction: it is /PERSISTENT:YES .
