Desktop5.DSK error messages

About six months ago, we moved our users' Desktop5.DSK, names.nsf and ID files to their home folders on the network and just modified the Notes.ini settings.  This project was being done simultaneously with upgrading all users to W2K platform.  It has been working perfectly fine until last week when we moved our server room to another area.  Since then, we started experiencing error messages as users try to access Notes.  Here is one of the errors that they get:

Windows was unable to save all the data of the file \Device\LanmanRedirector\<user home directory path>\Lotus\Notes\Data\Desktop5.DSK.  The data has been lost.  This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection.  Try to save this file elsewhere.

I have read a similar situation on the LDD forums:

but it doesn't really give me something to work on.
Has anyone come across this before?

I haven't encountered the problem yet, but it sounds to me as the cause of your problem is somewhere in the network configuration.
It looks as if your session to the network server is lost during write to the file, so I'd check the stability of your network.
See if there are any errors on the network using a network sniffer of some kind and you might be able to backtrace the problem.

Causes for the network problems could be a faulty bridge, router, network card, ...

Thanks.  It was due to a delay in the client PC trying to access our file server to write to the Desktop5.DSK.  Windows 2000 workstation is very sensitive when it comes to delay in writing to files.

Zdima, What did you do to desensitize Windows 2000 from these delays?

I'm having a similar problem but not with notes but with access databases on a server.
