Hi guys,

Just bought a ZyXEL NSA325 v2 ... installed 2 x 3TB WD RED Series drives ... all working very well ... so far ... fingers crosed ...

THE ISSUE:
The issue I have is, everytime I start Windows up, to do my work, I have to keep remapping the NAS's Music and Admin folders to their respective drive letters ...

I thought this was automatic when you ticked the box that says Reconnect at Windows Logon!!?? ... do I have to do something else for this to work properly? ...

Also, is there a way to disable the 'pain in the butt' LOGIN box that keeps popping up on 'Everything' you do, inside of the NAS Starter Utility??? ...

Very furstrating to a great setup ...

cheers,
Gem

Instead of mapping network drives, try to create shortcuts to NAS shares using network UNC name, for example: \\nsa310\video. This way you will get 2 additional benefits: it will not throw error trying to reconect network drives, when NAS is switched off and it will reduce a little windows startup time (connection will be made only when you click on schortcut).
Regarding NAS Starter Utility. I used it only to initialise NAS for first time, so I can't advise. Are you using latest version of it?

Sorry I'am on Windows 7. Don't have experience with NAS3** on Windows 8.1. It can be related with SMBv3 introduced in Windows 8, while Zyxel's NAS samba version is 3.5.6, which supports SMBv2 and SMBv1 protocols only, but that is just a guess. Is the PC and NAS in the same workgroup? Is your Windows up to date?
It was already, when Windows updates breaks SMB and later fixes solves that.

One more idea. Set static ip for NAS and try to map as network drive using local ip. For example: \\192.168.0.1\sharename. Does that changes anything?

THIS helped me! Thank you! My problem was slightly different. On Win10, I never had to reconnect to the drive manually, however once the mapping stopped working and I could not remap it by servername.
