On a new Dell Dimension L running Windows ME we have two network drives mapped to folders on a Windows NT 4.0 server (e.g., N maps to \\Server\data). There are 5 other Windows ME PCs and two Windows 2000 Pro PCs with the same mapping. In all cases the Windows OSes have the latest and greatest upgrades from Microsoft applied. The only non-Microsoft product on the Dell is Norton System Works 2000.
The Windows NT server uses workgroup access authority, not domain access/security. File sharing on the mapped folders is to everyone..no passwords.
The Dell looses the mapped drives, even though reconnect at logon is set and the machine has not been restarted. The other PCs seem quite happy - never loosing their connection. Rebooting the Dell returns the mapping...also, forced mapping of the drives from Explorer/Tools/Map Network Drives works.
Question is why are they disappearing and how to fix? HELP!!
