    NAS shares not always reconnecting at log on


    Quite frequently I find that my Synology NAS shares don't always reconnect at log on, but as soon as I click on the mapped shares, they become available. I've read an article on the Microsoft web site (https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...0-version-1809) but it's too technical for me to understand. Can anyone explain in simple step-by-step terms if there is a way to resolve this issue? My laptop is running on Windows 10 64-bit.

    Yes this is a known problem. I assume yours does issue a notification that it couldn't connect ? mine does most of the time. My Synology unit does go to sleep, when there is no activity, and it takes rather long before it can respond to a connection request. Here is where Windows 10 fails to wait long enough for the unit to receive a response. That Microsoft support report shows how to set up a Power shell script to attempt to connect and retries after 30 seconds. This still is not fixed since the date on that support report shows its for W10 version 1809, which when I installed my NAS Unit (end of 2018) and since then I have had this problem up to today under Version 2004.

    I have created a batch file which I can run when I get the error that W10 couldn't connect which does almost the same thing as the Power shell script.

    You can do it manually by using the "Map Network Drive" function in Windows file explorer. FIRST you have to disconnect from the Mapped drive and then try to re-connect using the Using the Mapping function. Note: that this may take several attempt's to get it to connect.

    My Synology Diskstation is not set to sleep, so it's not an issue with the NAS. I can reconnect just by clicking on the mapped shares, but it's a pain having to remember to do that and also, my e-mail client (The Bat!) stores its data on the NAS, so it fails to load when I boot my computer if the shares have not become active.

    I understand, so Are you getting a notification that "windows could not connect to the Mapped drives" message ? If so then you could code up per the "MS Support site" either Workaround 1 or Workaround 2. That will get around the issue by making the connection automatically.

    I don't see a popup message as such, but an icon does appear on the taskbar.NAS shares not always reconnecting at log on-screenshot-14_07_2020-21_52_52.jpg

    Not sure I fully comprehend how to set up the workarounds yet or which one to use.
