Our MyBook 2TB is connected to the network via ethernet, it is mapped as a drive, “reconnect at login” is checked, yet it has the red X on the drive until we click on it - then it works perfectly fine.
This happens on 3 W7 machines as well as 2 W8 machines.
There is no password assigned to it, and it never fails to work as it should after you click on it, but that little popup at startup saying that windows couldnt reconnect all netowrk drives happens every time it boots. We’ve tried remapping it, adding credentials, changing the port it’s on… Literally everything we could find on Google or here, and nothing seems to make it reconnect when the machines start.
This is only a real problem because Carbonite can’t reconnect to it even after we click on it, so it needs to reconnect when the machine starts or our backup won’t run properly.
Any ideas? Am I missing something?
