Are you using DFS?  i.e. you have a replication topology set-up and have enabled mirrored shares?

The Microsoft article for troubleshooting DFS issues is here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Bb727056.aspx

Have you looked in the event viewer to see if there are more (and hopefully more descriptive!) errors reported?  If there are, please post them back here as it should shed more light.
