2019: Reconnect drive at login/startup is not working

First, go to Site Properties --> Connection settings for your site profile and ensure that the setting for "Connect at login/startup" is enabled. Next, go to App Settings and ensure that "Run in taskbar tray at startup" is enabled.

Work Around

Use command line parameters with WebDrive to map your drive, and create a batch file called "MapMyDrive.bat" using Notepad. Enter the following:

"c:\program files\webdrive\webdrive.exe" /s:"<your site name here>"

Replace <your site name> with your actual site name, then save the batch file and place the batch file in your Windows "Startup" folder so that it runs when you login.
