Mount a network drive for CrashPlan

I was having issues with getting CrashPlan to backup to network storage (a Western Digital MyBookLive). In short, the drive was not always mapped. I fixed it using advice given in this article:

The batch file looked like this:

net use Z: /DELETE
net use Z: "\\\Andy" "password here" /USER:"username here" >>E:\mount_drive_for_crashplan.log

And I created a scheduled task to run it as instructed in the article.
