The specified network name is no longer available.



I'm using Vista Home on my laptop and sharing files over my office network to
a server running Server 2003.

I have a mapped network drive for the server. Just recently, for no apparent
reason, I loose my connection and get the error "The specified network name
is no longer available." when I try to access something on the server.

I have to reboot and login again to reconnect to my server. Any help is

Disconnect the current Mapped Drive and generate a new one according to the
current status of the folder.
If you can not re-map you have to check the sharing and the permissions.
