    I have a Windows share that I connect to and share data with often on my Mac. However, every time I reboot, I have to re-connect via Go > Connect To Server.

    How do I configure my Mac to map this drive upon boot up every time?

    You can go into the user account area of System Preferences. Under your username, go to Login Items and then just drag a shortcut to the Windows share to the list. You might want to store any login info the server uses in Keychain so it mounts automatically, otherwise it will try to mount automatically but will get stuck when the server asks for a username and password.
