Permanently map network drive in Windows

May 2, 2012

Have you ever run into an issue when after mapping a network drive and saving login/password you end up with disconnected drive after a reboot? To overcome this problem use command line with the following switches to net use routine:

net use w: \\server\share /savecred /persistent:yes

Then enter your username and password and that seems to be it.

But I had a problem when network drive doesn’t map with error: “Invalid username/password”. Even though they are correct. If you run into a similar problem include username and password into the command like this:

net use w: \\server\share password /savecred /persistent:yes /user:username
