Windows 10 loses mapped drives by raistlin

I've decided to try Windows 10 again and so far it's proving to be reasonable... except for one thing:-

It keeps losing my mapped network drives (within my NAS). I get the impression that this happens if I don't access the drive for a while. Windows 10 also cannot see my network PCs either when this happens and it takes a re-boot to get them back.

It does have network access though as my internet connection remains as it should.

Any ideas please?

Is it losing them after going into power save mode, had to change the wireless card settings to disable this when I moved to Win10 as it wouldn't restart the card when woken up from sleep or locked mode.

It's ethernet Mark, not wireless. THe PC connects to the internet so the NIC drivers are alive and working.

Hi Paul,
right hand click on windows button
Select Command Prompt(admin) then type in
net config server /autodisconnect:-1
The default seems to be 15 mins

Well, I tried... I really tried to get on with Windows 10 but with data transfer speeds of a few KB/sec over a gigabit network, I decided enough was enough and chose to avail myself of Microsoft's kind and thoughtful willingness to allow roll-back to Windows 7.

I particularly liked the bit where, after completely messing up my PC beyond recovery they kindly present me with a terminal BSoD.

Oddly enough, I'm by no means the first to benefit from the bounteous Micro$oft in just this very manner, according to the 'net.

Thank god I'm paranoid about backup of data. Luckily, I lost nothing, even though Micro$oft saw fit to trash my C Drive without any warning.

So, after a pleasant hour or two of re-installation I now have a Windows 7 desktop in front of me and that's the way it's going to stay.

BTW. Network data transfer? Blazingly fast :)

The transfer speed should be as good as win 7 if not better but there is nothing like real life to test it properly.
