I recently purcahsed a 2TB My Book Essential drive which I share on my home network running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Full access is assigned to “Everyone”. Everything works fine as long as I don’t shutdown or reboot.
If I restart the machine (or shutdown and power back up), the network share is lost. When I click on the properties of the drive and go to the Sharing tab, it is marked as “Not Shared” and I have to share it out and assign permissions to Everyone again.
I always use the (true) local Administrator account on this box. Why does the WD My Book keep losing its network share on a warm and cold reboot?
Any help would be appreciated.
