    Hi

    We are experiencing problems with some of our clients losing their
    connection to our mapped drives.
    We use offline files and what happens is that suddenly the Offline file
    notification pops up with a message telling the user that they are working
    offline. The connection to our Exchange server is still running and the user
    can use the internet as well.
    If the users just right-click on the Offline notification and select
    synchronize they get connected to the mapped drives again.

    This is a problem that occurs around once a week, we have around 40 clients
    and about 10-12 of them experience the problem. They are connected to
    different network hardware so everything is pointning towards a software
    problem.

    I found MS article KB884020 and have installed it on 4 of the computers last
    week but we haven't had the problem since but I am quit sure that it will be
    back.
