Net Use - System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found

I have a SBS 2003
I map to three drives with a bat file in default domian policy (at logon) which works fine
I have one other drive I want to map to only a few users. I created a group for the users, created the share and add the group to that share under sharing/permissions. I added the group to the few users as well. The drive mapping does not work for that one drive

When use explorer to access the drive \\server\drive and I access and create files on the drive. When I do net use X: \\server\drive I get "System error 53 has occurred. The network path was not found"
Only on that one drive. If I net use Y: \\server\drive on the drive where everyone has access to it works fine with no erros.

Any ideas why?

The new share does it have a space in the sahre name?

You would have to use this
net use y: "\\server\share name"

You can share a drive, did you, or a folder?

You should set the share permissions to everyone full control and then set access permissions with NTFS (security) permissions. When doing so make sure you add the system account with full control.
