When I boot up my computer, my 2 network drives fail to load and show a red X over them under File Explorer, as well as a pop up telling me network drives could not be loaded. When I click on the drives, Windows attempts to load it again and it removes the red X and shows the drives as being connected. Why can't Windows just load them up correctly from the beginning? This happens every time I boot my computer.
