    Mapped Drives not connecting (XP - Pro)

    I changed my password on my workstation and on the server (NT4).
    Now when I login (I have admin rights on both), my mapped drives don't connect. I have to double-click one of them and input my password. How can I get the drives to re-connect like before.
    I do have a login script on the server.
    Thanks,

    Not sure why, because of the "newness" of XP, but I think you'll have to disconnect the mapped drives and re-map them. It hasn't happened to me since I've been running XP Pro but it did when I was "still employed" and running Win98 into an NT server.

    I struggled with this issue last week at a lawfirm client, except that we were trying to join and NT domain and also join a Novell 5.0 server. It's pretty obsure stuff.

    Are you using simple file sharing or have you joined the NT domain? To join an NT domain, I believe Simple File Sharing should be disabled. Go to MyComputer, Tools, Folder Options, View, and uncheck
