IT Manager here but strange issue with my home network that I've yet to solve.
Four client PCs (Two Win 7 Pro, Two Win10) and a Win7 Pro "server" with file shares and 3rd party spam software.
Three clients work fine, no issues.
On my main PC (Win 7 Pro) every now and again, maybe a fortnight, maybe a month, my mapped drives will fail:
"An error occured while reconnecting N: to \\server\share. Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored."
Trying to browse to \\server results in: "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation."
The only solution i've found is to restart the server, but it's a pain and I want to solve it.
Any guidance as to where to look?
