Cannot save to mapped drive

    I have a drive mapped to a folder on my hard. If I navigate directly to this
    folder I can open a doc, change it and file it back to the same location.

    I have mapped access to the same folder as drive "X". When I access the very
    same file via the mapped drive I cannot save back to the same location. When
    I look at the permissions tab I do not see any reason I could not save to
    this folder.

    How to fix?

    By the way... this folder is in my "Public" folder and I have mapped access
    to it for my wife's computer. I have set full read write access for her in
    this folder but she cannot make changes using either the mapped drive on her
    computer or by navigating directly to the folder via our home network.

    Also... I recently reinstalled Vista on this PC. Both me and my wife were
    able to make document changes and save them using the mapped drive before
    this.
