Often when starting quickbooks it does not recognize my mapped drive, even though it is active and accessible by windows explorer. This also happens when I try to repair a file and the mapped drive does not appear in the search window. The problem is only solved when I restart my computer. This occurs with several company computers.
When researching about I found the topic of the link below, but the only method that fits is number one. In this case my computers were already active.
