Connect to network drive automatically at startup
  

Hello everyone,

I just ask you for help because I have a recurring problem that becomes annoying over time. I have a hard disk on my second pc and I want to automatically log me on my first pc at startup but I fails, I do tick remember the passwords I have to retype the same password on every boot, or would it not be a way to circumvent this problem?

Thanks for any help.

You can can create a batch file in the startup folder which automatically creates a connection to the network drive:

see using net use:

Do you have to log in with credentials to access that drive? If so, you can try this:

Using Notepad, make a file that says:

net use <drive letter>: "\\<server>\<path>" <password> /USER:"<user>"

So an example would be:
net use J: "\\data\my documents" mypass /USER:"data\userid"

Save the file and rename the extension to .bat and save it in you startup folder.
