Windows 7 Bug – Could not reconnect all network drives Print
Friday, 09 September 2011 11:06

Since I upgraded to Windows 7 I noticed that after boot I received a popup dialog from the task tray stating that Windows could not reconnect all network drives. A red "X" is visible over them in when viewed from Windows Explorer. Simply clicking the drive will connect them, but some applications will fail if they depend on information residing on the network resource.

The only fix I have found is hard coding the computers IP. I have tried different DHCP servers, different switches, and exhaust all related network settings in Windows to correct the problem.

Beware the above command will disable the server service auto tuning (eg if you add more memory to the computer after running this command, it will not be automatically recognised).
