I have a few network drive mappings that I want to be available to various programs upon reboot. However, they remain disconnected until I visit them manually.
If a program, such as OneNote which reads notes shared on a network drive, tries to connect, it does not see the share and does not cause auto-reconnect.
I am looking for a fully automated solution, preferably just a setting to make Windows natively reconnect on machine boot.
For example, right now drive Y and Z are disconnected and X is connected because I accessed it manually:
Edit: I have to change my question slightly but with quite a significant impact on the answers. The drives are indeed NOT available at logon. They only become reachable after I open an ssh tunnel.
Therefore, the main question is - how do you make applications force the drive alive when they try to access it?
I guess another approach would be to automatically run a script when the tunnel gets established. It's probably my best bet if the above is not possible.
