sysmount error when accessing mapped drive

Last Modified: 2012-09-10

Odd issue.

We have several folders mapped from a Windows 2003 server to a Windows XP PC.  All of the drives open and display the contents except one.  On this one system we get a SysMount error - Windows cannot find 'SysMount.{..... - see attached file for full details.

If we disconnect the drive and recreate it we can access it once, if we try to open it again we get the same error.

Other systems on the network can access the drive without a problem.

Some ideas would be appreciated, I googled this and did not find much.
