Shared Network Drive showing up as "blank" from other computers - worked fine yesterday
Posted on 2009-02-19
Strangest thing is happening. I have an external USB drive connected to one of our servers for backups. I have the other servers map to it's shared USB drive and proceed to backup directly to the drive. This method worked fine...for two days.
Now when I try to view the drive from other computers using \\xxxsrv0\g$ (G being the drive letter) all that pops up is a window that is completely blank. Also the NT Backups are failing because of this, it says it cannot find the media. When I try to view the drive from the computer it's actually connected to - voila! I can see everything!
What would cause the drive to appear blank on all the computers that map to it?
