Network Drives are Disconnecting

Quick Question.
Over the weekend, network drives that have been mapped to different workstations on the network become disconnected.  So when employees come in on Monday, they cannot access the network drive and I have to create a new mapped drive.  Once I do that the old mapped drives suddenly work again.  

What steps do I need to take to eliminate this issue?

Thanks

You might want to also consider modifying the user's login script (if any) to include mapping the drive for them when they sign into the machines in the morning.  It doesn't stop the problem from happening (use the steps indicated in the Microsoft KB article) but it does take the administrative overhead off of you.

Upon reading this article, I realize I need to restate the issue.  Yes, the mapped network drives disconnect.  The real issue is that when I go to the source drive (drive that is being mapped), i find that the "shared" settings are gone.  (as if they were never in place).  This is why the mapped drives are no longer available, but why would this be occuring?

Thanks

I assume that i need to re-post this question, since no one is adding comments?  If the answer is yes, how do I handle the points?
