We have a machine running 32 bit windows server 2003. It has 4 drives - call them A,B,C,D - with the root shared. Our workstations are all XP Pro - call them 1,2,3,4 - and can connect to all 4 drives. In addition, each machine has shortcuts to a specific drive for quick access. ( 1 has a shortcut to folders on A, 2 has a shortcut to folders on B and so on.) On only a couple of workstations, the desktop shortcuts have quit working and access to that drive is denied. In other words, on machine 1, the shortcuts to drive A and any attempted connection to drive A is denied. The other drives continue to be accessible. Likewise on , say machine 3 , the shortcut to drive C and any attempted connection to drive C is denied, with continued access to any other drive. Any idea about the cause and/or a fix. Thanks
An addition: No domain, just a workgroup. All permissions are correct and identical on all workstations. Some of you seem to miss the point of the problem. At setup, all workstations can see and access all the server drives. On one workstation, a shortcut to a folder on one of the drives is placed on desktop. At some point the shortcut and all access to only that one drive is denied. All other drives are accessible. This has happened on more than one workstation and one drive. Sorry if the original post was hard to follow.
