I have a user who got this error today. Once she restarted it went anyway. Is this something that I should worry about? Is it a fluke incident if not how can I repair it and what caused it?

C:\Windows\systems32>echo off
The Network connection could not be found
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2250.
System error 85 has occured.
The local device name is already in use

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

check if net use /persistent:yes .
 If you have mapped some network drives and check the reconnect at logon, or your network uses logon script to map network drives, the mapped network drives may show red Xs. If you enable echo and pause the logon script or if using net use to map the same drive manually, you may get "System error 85 has occurred. The local device name is already in use." One thing you may want to try is using net use /persistent:no, for example, net use i: \\servername\folder /persistent:no
