I setup a shared drive on a Win7 system across a VPN.   I mapped the share on the other end of the VPN.   Initially the share works fine, but in time (15-x minutes) there are Grey Xes on the folders and when i try to access them i get "I:folderName is not accessible.       This file is currently not available for use on this computer".

This is a WorkGroup.    

I'd like the Shares to be constantly available.  

It seems like it times out after so long.    I didn't have this problem with XP,   this issue is something about win7.
