Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost


Mapped Drive Connection to Network Share May Be Lost

Release
Windows 7,Windows 2008 server enterprise

Problem
 The mapped drive may be disconnected after a regular interval of inactivity, and Windows Explorer may display a red "X" on the icon of the mapped drive. However, if you try to access or browse the mapped drive, it reconnects quickly.

Solution
This behavior occurs because the systems can drop idle connections after a specified time-out period (by default, 15 minutes) to prevent wasting server resources on unused sessions. The connection can be re-established very quickly, if required.

Method1:

1.Open registry editor and locate the following path
  
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters
 2. In the right pane, click the autodisconnect value, and then on the Edit menu, click Modify. If the autodisconnect value does not exist, follow these steps:
        On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click REG_DWORD.
        Type autodisconnect, and then press ENTER.
        On the Edit menu, click Modify.
         Click Hexadecimal.
   3. In the Value data box, type ffffffff, and then click OK. Close the registry editor and restart the PC
