On My Windows 7 "Home" desktop, I utilize a Buffalo NAS for my backups and music storage for my SONOS music system. The brilliant Backupprogram I use is called “Allway Sync” (http://allwaysync.com)that requires the drives to be accessible for it to work. The issue is when the computer is initially turned on ,the 3 Mapped drives (for example: DESKTOP_BACKUP-NAS (\\NAS-MRM)(X:) all have a Red colored “X” over the icon of the drive on the far left of each of the mapped network drives. (All three of the network drive letters reside on the same NAS)

I can awake them by clicking directly on each “X”, and the“X” disappears and the drive is then accessible. An internet search reveals many others with this same problem, and an inquiry to Buffalo tells me it’s of course a “Microsoft Issue”…… The SONOS System is not affected as it looks at the NAS directly…. Not through the computer.......... Any thoughts on how to solve this will be appreciated!

Hi Marc,

Sorry, I'm not going to be able to help you with this one, but I do have exactly the same problem with the backup software I use.(Shadow) and my Western Digital NAS Drive.

Maybe we can both get fixed at the same time.

Regards,

Paul
