One Mapped Drive keeps disconnecting
Posted on 2006-07-24
We are running a Windows 2003 server as a mail server and a NAS as a file server. We have Autoexec 10.d as the back-up software and we run worldox as our document management system. All users have dell computers Optiplex 160 CL or newer and run windows XP. To the File Server we have three mapped drives that are connected to by all the local machines. Those drives all go to the D-drive on the file server. Those Drives are F:/data, G:/STI and I:/Archive.
The G: and I: drives never have any problems. They are connected at all times. The F: drive however seems to disconnect at any time on any computer for any reason. There is no rhyme or reason to it. It just disconnects. It does at log-in. It does it during the day. It always fixes with a reboot.
I have tried a bunch of different things. I just can't seem to get the problem to stop. I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions.
