That's probaby a user rights problem.
It says it has only 0 because the user does not have enough rights to read the unit.

Few places to check:
- GPO to make sure there is no rule or policy on disk access or mapped drive
- Pagefile on the server to make sure you have more than 50% of your physical memory (example: if you have 2GB of memory your pagefile needs to be 3GB at least)
- Check Task Manager to see if you have enough resource
- Check Shared Permission to make sure Everyone has set to full access

I was going to say that, but then I thought you said 'No matter who I log on as' etc... Still, it's worth checking that the account you're using has access to this network drive's destination folder/drive, and also as a troubleshooting step, you could try giving them full control to see if the problem goes away then...

Make sure you are using a domain user and not a local account.
