We are having an interesting issue with one of our file shares. On occasion while we are working we suddenly use access to our shared drive (personal drive) that is mapped from our user account. This happens at random times throughout the day and does not seem to hold to any particular pattern. You can see some images below.
We have our user accounts set to map a drive to a file server and to call that drive U: - We have setup Group Policy to redirect My Documents and the Desktop to this drive. Due to legacy reasons users were previously informed to copy all of their critical documents to their U: drive manually but that is no longer the case as their My Docs and Desktop are done automatically.
When the access to the documents stops working it is only to the documents that are NOT stored in My Documents or in the Desktop folder. This is happening only to the documents that were manually copied over to the U: drive. I have checked all of the logs on the client and the server and I do not see any messages that relate to this issue.
You can see from the picture below that we are finding little Xs on the documents. When you try to open the documents you get a message This file is currently not available for use on this computer. (as seen below).
I have also included a picture of the user profile screen. I have used a red marker to take out identifying system and user information.
If anyone has any ideas I could use some help.
