I have a domain-network (DC is 2008 R2) where on one computer (Windows 7 Enterprise) we have shared out C-drive and D-drive to 4 users in the network.

At first everyone get access as normal, but after one user runs some processing of data on the shared folder, the other three are disconnected. Not until the computer has been restarted do they get it back. All 4 are administrators and all 4 has read/wright rights on the shared C and D.
