I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

does you network have a DNS server?
Have you tried using ip address \\192.168.1.5?

Check spelling means DNS issue therefore you will have to use IP address instead of the name.

Are they all identical builds?
Can you ping the file server by DNS name?
Can the file server ping the troublesome windows 7 box?

Network and Sharing Center.
     Windows network set to home network?
>> Advanced options
          Windows network discovery turned on?
          Turn off home group unless you you use it.

Open file explorer >> Network
Do you see any other network PCs?   No, recheck network settings,  PC name, Workgroup spelling (etc as others mentioned above).
 
Do you see "station01"  ?  
      -- no? right click in an open space  >> refresh  
      -- Yes?  open station01,  can you find the folder?  

If yes, the current drive map may be corrupt, try remapping it.

Thnaks to all Experts,
we tested each point, its working now... mapping was corrupted
before re-mapping we had to check most of our network settings.
