I have mapped a network drive on a Windows 7 enterprise 32 bit computer successfully and it is accessible when accessing it through "My Computer".

When I open a program and attempt to browse to said mapped network drive, windows prompts me for a password (It has remembered the username). If I type the password and check the "Remember login" checkbox, after a restart Windows asks again.

If I right click on the drive from within the browse window and go to properties it tells me the drive is disconnected. If I do the same thing from My Computer the drive is connected.

In task manager, the process for the browse window that cannot access the drive is using the standard logged in user account, e.g. Max.

Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening?

Thanks, Max.

The account from which you are trying, is it an adminstrator account ? If not, then try running the program using 'Run as administrator'.

Yes it is an admin account and the program is being ran as admin. – Max Aug 15 '12 at 12:21
