    The little Red-X

    Ok, Can someone give me a little help here-

    I've got a machine at my firm that has a "little-red-x" over the mapped drives every so often, how do I avoid this?

    I've already got my time-out-value specified on the server, I've altered features on the server for the auto-disconnect feature on it, and I even checked basic hardware functioning but it still does it every so often?

    Are the drives actually disconnecting or does it just show that they are?

    check the event viewer to see if any errors happen when trying to reconnect the network drives.

    Network drive get disconnect all time if you use them. When you click to them, they get back to normal again 99.9% of time.

    You are on Windows 2000 with a NT domain?

    could be they require authentication and the saved password is incorrect. or the path changed so it could not reconnect.
