    Thanks! So how do you keep it connected? It stops being connected randomly throughout the day forcing the user to login to the portal and navigate to their document library in order to reconnect the drive. Very messy and defeats the purpose of mapping the drive for users that don’t use web apps.

    RU serious! So, if instead of choosing Tools, Map Network Drive from Windows Explorer you should right click Computer and choose Map Network Drive and it stays connected? Boy, I hope I’m understanding this correctly because I have been struggling with this since conversion.

      Hi Jenny,
      My users login to the portal/shared folder using IE and from library tab click on open in windows explorer at their first login and then shared drive works fine. hope this helps you.
