Get rid of red Xs for network drives

User Ronald X explains how to get rid of those annoying red Xs that sometimes appear next to your network drives.

It seems like everyone is having the problem of the red Xs for network drives. I have seen all kinds of answers...

to this problem, but none of them working correctly for me.

I have a solution that works 100% of the time if you run the command:"net config server /autodisconnect:-1" from the workstation and server.

This will get rid of those red Xs forever.
