Mapped Network Drive Hanging / Times Out

I have a user (Windows 7, 2 year old Dell laptop) who is having an issue with a mapped network drive (T:).  When he tries to access the one particular mapped network drive he gets the spinning blue circle followed sometime by a crash or eventually he has to task manager his way out of it.  On the occasion that he does get into a folder the same thing happens when he tries to open a file.  He has no problem accessing any of the other mapped drives.
None of my other users (65) are reporting this issue.  Any thoughts?
Thanks

If the shared drive is beginning to fail, only a few sectors may be bad and they could easily be the folder with his files.  Check the event log on  the host PC for NTFS or DISK errors.
