  1. Mapping a network drive windows 10


    Hi All,

    I have tried to map an old network drive to my PC which hasn't been connected since win 10 update, it is a Lenovo/EMC product that is no longer supported and Lenovo EMC storage manager (On my old pc)) doesn't appear to be working. (Says the device if offline).

    I have changed all relevant settings and updated/rolled back the drivers but still no connection, I just want to remove the data from this drive rather than actually be able to access it moving forwards.

    I have tried connecting directly via an ethernet cable (With ethernet to USB adaptor on laptop side) but the connection still doesn't show up, can anyone suggest a workaround that might let me access this data?

    Thanks in advance,
    Arron

    :)

    Map Network Drive in Windows 10


    thank you for doing this tutorial.
    An issue that plagued us in earlier Windows still remains in 10 and I do not yet understand some of the solutions given in the superuser forum thread pasted below.
    The issue is simple:
    - "drives" are mapped correctly, and work well WHEN they are manually accessed.
    - Windows 10 automatically disconnects the resource when not used.
    - Waking or restarting/booting the mapped drive remains disconnected: no request has been made, therefore the shared resource is offline [Red X]

    the solution would be something to cause the mapping to be ready/available/connected at all times except for sleep [I guess... that would be permissible to most] or 'off'. In the thread below a couple of people propose 'solutions' [despite a couple of boneheaded ideas] but these either over-reach or are limited only to solving the 'connect at startup' need.

    Not solving this defeats automated routine backups [pushed from the client station in question, in this example], which can be deadly. users should not be expected to have great memories or great technical skills Mapping a network drive windows 10 :)

    what is the RIGHT step to take to make the Mapped resource "always available", with exceptions noted above?

    On login, how do I get Windows to mount/connect a mapped network drive automatically? - Super User
