At 1:00 today, all of our Windows 7 machines (and a Vista machine) disconnected from our main file server.  The server is Server 2012.  It is not a domain controller.  All of tghe XP machines are fine.  I can ping to and from the server and W7 machines, remote desktop into the server is fine too.

The domain controller is Server 2008.

Any ideas on what happened to bump all of the W7 workstations off the shares?

Check the time on the File Server, make sure it is synced with the domain controller.

I will check.  That's a good idea.

Verify and (I would) restart the Server service on your file server, then see if you can browse to the Share(s) from a Win7 computer.

That was it.  Now I just have to find out why it went out of sync.
