I have a Windows 2003 Server that connects to several Windows File Shares on other machines. I copy files to these file shares using some Scheduled Tasks that call a batch script. My issue is when the machine is logged out, the file shares are not there and the copies fail.

How can I maintain my file share connections regardless of whether my machine is logged in or not?

Don't use a drive letter, use a UNC path, so if Z:\ is \\server\shares then just have your batch copy to \\server\shares\folder instead of Z:\folder.
