The share used to work for a while, it's a samba share on a remote linux server. Today I connected to this win server and saw a red X on the share so i've disconnected it and when i'm trying to re-add it by right clicking my computer and choosing "map a network drive" it fails with the error in the topic of the question, it also fails when i do:

net use l: \\server\share /user:logsmove

Your help is much appreciated.
