Microsoft SharePoint says folder does not exist

Hello everyone,
We're using SharePoint Portal Server to deploy a solution.

Sharepoint has a nasty habit of erroneously reporting that a folder or file does not exist, when, in fact, it does exist.

However, on a good day, Sharepoint behaves appropriately.

Does anybody have ANY IDEA what might be going on here?

Thanks very much for your input. All ideas are accepted.

What folder? What part of Sharepoint are you in and what are you trying to do?

Is it a local folder, a UNC folder, a mapped drive folder?

It's a folder created within a web store, accessible via a URL rather than a file service.

Your security settings may be too strict. Try the following:

In Microsoft Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet options, and click the Security tab. In the Select a Web content zone to specify its security settings box, click Trusted sites, and then click Sites. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL of your team Web site, and then click Add.

Cheers.

Check the list here:

==========================
Windows 2000 updates that MUST be installed BEFORE you install Sharepoint Server:
==========================

=========================
I'm assuming you have already downloaded and installed SP1 for Sharepoint Server? If not:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q312963
=========================
This relates to your problem and SP 1:

========================

Is there BDCS being used in the URL? (Double Byte Charactor Sets)

========================
Last one , I promise, the SharePoint Resource Kit:

Just a "in case I ever need something from the reosurce kit" link...

Cheers.
