Error msg is: Windows was unable to save all the data to the file. The data has been lost. The error maybe caused by your computer hardware or network connection.

Check your network connection NICs and cables, try running
Ping x.x.x.x -t and see if there are any drop-outs

I ran 100 pings from server to a couple of PCs that had the error message (they all run XP Pro SP2, up to date with Windowes updates) and there were no data loss.

That is a lot of work, since we are talking about various shared folders with security restrictions for multiple users.

The problem was due to disk quota on the server, user reached maximum. Increasing disk quote eliminated the error.
