I have a bit of a problem with drives on a network. I find that when I'm logged on (as any user) the H: Drive which is currently mapped as the user's folder on the network seems to disappear. If I re-run the log on script it sometimes reappears. Most the of time I have to reboot, it just gets very annoying when you have to reboot several times a day. This has only happened since going to Windows 7 and can't see what the problem is. It doesn't happen to all users, only a few, but the accounts aren't different.

Does anyone know what causes it/the fix?

Since you say it happens to a select few users, I would check their setting or maybe there is a time out. How are you mapping the drive? Is it over a wired network or a wireless one?

The drive is mapped over a wired network. It can happen to any user at any time. There doesn't appear to be an correlation between it. Just at some point, a users H drive will disappear and will only come back with a reboot. Didn't know if it was a Windows glitch? We map it through Active Directory so didn't know if there is a glitch in that either?
