Mapped Drive disconnect question

My first post in forever - forgot my old UN/PW :D

Had a quick question... I have 2 servers off-site that run Server 2003. My server on-site is also Server 2003. I have a harddrive from each off-site server mapped back to my on-site server. I'm trying to run a XCOPY.bat file to pull over information in order to put it onto some LTO Ultrium tapes.

For some reason, the drives disconnect after a certain period of time. When I come in in the morning they say Disconnected, but all I have to do is click on them and they "reconnect" and work just fine. I'm not sure why they don't reconnect when my .bat file trys to access them. MY .bat file pulls the information I need just fine during the day when I run it manually. I have it set to run at 1am, but it seems to bypass the directories associated with the mapped drives. The NTBackup logs also do not show any errors.

I've read about an autoDisconnect registry entry, but am unsure if this even pertains to the issue I'm having. Any ideas?
