Mapped Drive Becomes Inaccessible

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
We have two users that are having the same problem. There are mapped drives off the server--Windows 2003 R2 Standard--that for whatever reason work fine for most of the day and then randomly disconnect. What I mean is, the drives still appear, but the user cannot browse the content (Windows XP Pro). This is not a case of idle disconnect. The user must reboot to resolve the issue. Any ideas?
