Mapped drives unavailable solved by cmd route -f - Explanation/resolution required

We have users that sometimes find that their mapped drives no longer work. When we run a route -f command as administrator the drives begin to work again. Can anybody explain why this happens and what we can do to stop it from happening going forward?

Might take some time to solve this permanently. However, you DO need to do a route print of a working situation first.
When the problem happens again, do a route print again, and compare with the working route. See the difference, and make a conclusion based on that info.
