I use RaiDrive to mount a Google Drive as a local drive on my Windows 10 machine. I then share that drive and some subfolders within Windows. Recently, the shares have all been going away when I reboot the computer. I have to quickly re-share everything and set permissions each time – meaning I have to log in to the machine directly.
I am not sure why this has started happening, but one thing I have noticed is that within RaiDrive, my mounted drive is listed as “Drive: Z: (Removable)” in the “Google Workspace” tab, and is also listed as type “removable” in Explorer. I do not recall if this was the case before this or not, but I strongtly suspect this is why Windows will not keep the shares through a reboot.
I tried setting up a second drive mount to see if there was any sort of option to select removable or not. There was not, and that second drive was also created as removable.
This machine isn’t rebooted all that often, but simply for stability, I will have to switch to another solution until this is fixed if this is not being worked on.
Any assistance will be appreciated.
