Scheduled task is not able to access mapped drive.

I believe this has something to do with Windows Server 2008 security for scheduled tasks.
I have a exe written in C# and is scheduled to run regularly.
It works fine in my development server running Windows Server 2003 but not
this new production server running Windows Server 2008.
This exe is reading some files from a mapped drive.
The error message I received -> Folder [Z:\Employee\Claim\FY2010_03\] not accessible.
I can even run from the command prompt!

What is wrong with my setup?

Is the server logged on at this point? do mapped drives present themselves if the server is not logged on? have you tired using the UNC Path \\servername\Employee\Claim\FY2010_03\ etc?
