Hello All; (This is working with a DOMAIN on a Windows 2003 Server)

This has always been an issue, ever since I started working with Windows 7.
And that is that the mapped network drives will loose their connection after 24-48 hours of online time, that is the system is on for that amount of time, without a reboot.

OK, now, this is the weird part.
I CAN access all the other drives on that server, from the Win7 system, when I browse the server through the network properties.
However, I am unable to access the drive that I have the "MAP" to.


What would be causing this issue?
And it seems that others are having problems with the Login to the network drive, however, that is not the problem that I am experiencing.

Any idea's on this issue?
I will really hate to have to reboot my computer every time that I loose connection to my MAPPED drives.

This is the error that I get.

\\SERVER-NAME\G - Web is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

An unexpected network error occurred.
