  • Hi,

    According to your description, I suggest you:

    1.rebuild index

    2.set the Drive Map GPO to use the Action UPDATE:

    a. Launch Group Policy Management

    b. Find your drive mapping GPO, right click on it and select EDIT


    d. Double click on the drive map that is automatically closing

    e. Change the ACTION drop down from REPLACE to UPDATE

    3. open Regedit, navigate to HKLM/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/Policies/System.

    Create a new REG_DWORD entry named "EnableLinkedConnections".

    Set its value to 1.

    Hope it could be helpful.
