network drive is not mapping properly for some users/pc's

Drives are automatically mapped when a user signs on using a login script in AD.  There are 6 drives that are mapped and all 6 are mapped to different folders on the same drive on the same server.  (They are all part of the same top level folder.)   I have 3 users where all of the drives map except for one of them.  I can manually map the drive but as soon as the pc restarts the drive is gone again even though it says to reconnect at logon.  It isn't a rights issue - the person can connect to the server/drive using explorer or by typing in the server name in My Computer.  It doesn't appear to be the pc because I can sign on as various other users on the same pc's and the mapping works fine.  This has been going on for 5 days.  Any suggestions?

What letters are you mapping the Drives on?

Does the PC in question have a card reader that uses some of the letters in the logon script?

I'm mapping h, k (which is the problem drive), l, m, p, u

And nope - none of the pc's have a card reader.  This worked fine for years until last week.  We had a power outage so I had shut down the servers.  When they came back up the shares were gone, so I just recreated them.  The mapping is working fine for 40+ other people - but these 3 are having issues on just that k drive. It just seems so bizarre since folders are all on the same server under the same top folder!
I would open up disk management and make sure no other drives are using the drive letter K.  If so you might need to change it.

I did open disk management and the only drives listed are the c and d drive, so that isn't the issue.  I also tried recreating the share 4 different ways that MS listed and none of them would stick.  

Could the user profile be hosed up some how?  Other users can sign on to the same pc and the k drive works just fine.

Back to square one.  It turns out that the majority of our staff do not get the K drive when they log on.  Just no one has complained about it.  I can't make any changes during the day when people are signed on so I'll have do that on the weekend as I'm off on Friday.  I'll report back the results on Monday.

This is long over due - it turns out that the script that runs to map the drives was hosed up and once I redid the script it solved the issue.

I determined the issue and corrected it.
