Hi,

While connecting our server, I found the below error message. Please advise me how to solve this problem.
FYI, there was no problem by yesterday. After today I booted my computer, I could not access to the data at '192.168.1.3'.
I try reboot and reconnect it at many times but the problem exists still. The other colloegues can access and use that server.

<Windows-Error Message>
An error occurred while reconnecting N: to \\192.168.1.3\data
Microsoft Windows Network : The local device name is already in use.
This connection has not been restored.

Go to my computer.  Make sure you don't have anything else mapped to N:  If you do then disconnect that drive if it is a network drive.

If you don't see anything mapped open a command prompt by clicking on start, run, and type cmd
At the command prompt type net use and press enter
If you see something using N: that is a network mapping try the following.

net use n: /d

If your N drive is being mapped using a script
Reboot your computer and your N: drive should now map

If it is not using a script then map the drive manually.

net use n: \\192.168.1.3\data at a command prompt.
