Get "The specified network name is no longer available" message re: shared drive

I am trying to copy several multi-gig files from a local machine to a drive on another machine on my network hat I marked on using the "Net use" command......

It seems to work for quite a number of minutes (15 or so) but then the copy command (that I entered at the cmd.exe cmd line ) blows up with the message above....


I know I have valid read/write access to the directory on the remote drive but it seems like the file system has a problem maintianing the drive as a connection....

Greetings smmsmm57,

Make sure the destination drive is not getting full.

Good Luck!

Hi smmsmm57,

what speed cards are you using, try forcing the duplex speed rather than having it set to auto

Adequate free space available.....not sure what is meant by "forcing the duplex speed" (i.e. lan connection /properties?). At any rate, problem still exists, thanks

under the properties of your lan connection - hit configure - advanced - speed and duplex - set it to 100

Yes...that seems to have addressed the issue...consider it a case closed, thanks

By doing the above, I seem to have radically slowed the speed with which I can copy stuff from an in-house network drive......any comment on this aspect? Thanks again
