I help out administering a small Windows based organisation and they are using internet based storage. The PCs are Windows XP and the shares are accessed through open VPN to the internet provider. I have set up batch scripts to run "net use" and placed these in the each users Startup directory so that they run and mount the required share when the user logs on. Is this the right approach? Should I be pre-mounting them some how when the computer boots, prior to user logon?
