My workflow server (running Server 2008) continually has issues connecting to shared folders on my file server (running Server 2003).

The workflow server has one of the shared folders from the file server mapped.  Then, suddenly, it can not longer access it.  I get this error:

"(\\servername\shared folder) 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.  NO MORE INTERNAL FILE IDENTIFIERS AVAILABLE."

My administrative account DOES have access to this server/share/folder and I do not get this message when accessing our secondary file server (also running Server 2003).  After restarting the workflow server, I can access the shared folder/drive for a while and then suddenly I can not and get the above error.  I have checked the Event Logs on both servers and see nothing out of the ordinary and not warnings or errors (well, the usual for print spoolers but nothing else).  

Please provide some assistance and if you need anything further I will provide it quickly.  Thanks!
