    Explorer can't load folders/drives with mounted network drives. [​IMG]



    As you see in the screenshot Explorer just sits there trying to load the folder I've requested. This happens, seemingly, randomly, at least I haven't been able to find a pattern. If I unmount all network drives the problem disappears. Sometimes it loads within a few seconds while some other time it can keep loading for several minutes preventing me from doing anything useful. As you can imagine this is very frustrating. One solution to temporarily bypass this is to cut the network connection and open the folder I need and then reconnect the network.

    System:
    -Windows 10 Home/Pro.
    -ZyXEL NAS540 with latest firmware (I've gone through several firmware updates since purchase).
    -Other devices mounted as network drives for easy access (e.g, Android phone, Shield Android TV, etc.).
    -Router Netgear WNR3500Lv2 with Tomato firmware 132 by Shibby (Same as NAS, gone through several firmware upgrades/-downgrades, problem persists).

    The router is Master Browser and WINS Server and these features are turned off on the NAS. ipconfig /all shows WINS Server as 192.168.1.1 (router).

    :)
     

  2. Windows reset stuck on 10%

    Double click the ISO file and it would mount as a drive in File explorer.

    In the drive, you would see a sources folder.

    Mount ISO image that persists or mount at start-up

    Using Windows 10 Home.

    I want to have an ISO disk image mounted permanently and assigned to drive letter U - rather like mapping a network drive.

    I know how to mount an ISO image in file explorer and assign it a drive letter in diskmgmt. But, when I re-start the computer, the mount does not persist and I have to do the mount/drive-letter assignment all over again.

    I know there are 3rd party utilities which can do this, but how do I do it in Windows 10?

    Is there a way of making the mount and drive-letter persist?

    Or perhaps a command that can be executed at start-up to mount and assign a drive letter?

    Or can it be done by kidding the "Map network drive" to map it somehow?

    Explorer can't load folders/drives with mounted network drives.

    I have 2 WDC NAS drives plugged into my Router and on Windows [XP and later], Linux Minu and Mac OS X computers I just Map a folder on them, usually the one named Public. I can also access them through Wi-Fi/Wireless Networking on Notebooks.

    I've tried mapping subfolders instead of mapping the root folder/drive but it makes no difference.

  5. Issue with Windows auto-mounting drives that shouldn't be mounted

    Issue with Windows auto-mounting drives that shouldn't be mounted: [img] You can see from the image above that random drives get drive letters assigned to them for no reason. In addition to that, I can't even remove the drive letters, unless I use diskpart, but then that doesn't stick between reboots. Any ideas? 41103
