We need to monitor the availability of a UNC at regular intervals and alert when the UNC path is unable to be accessed by a given user name and password.

Does anyone know of a free app that will do this?

Otherwise, it looks like a script may be needed.  Something that would access a UNC with a specific user name and password – would more than likely need to check for the presence of a file or something from the UNC location and then blat an alert if it is unable to do so.

I don’t really have a background in scripting or the time to learn \ test \ implement.  So an app would be great.

Otherwise, I could use some scripting examples that may help (full explanations needed).
