Brainstorming question

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by Kim K, Aug 15, 2010.

    I have an XP box that is set up in an office as an incoming fax, it does not
    have Norton installed and it is not a server, XP Pro only. The incoming fax
    folder is shared. We also have a server 08 and each user has a login script
    that launches the shared fax folder.

    The users complain that occasionally the shared Fax folder stops responding
    when they access it from their desk - this is corrected by disconnecting and
    rebooting their machine.

    Any ideas on how to fix this non responsive issue or can I run a task that
    will copy and move the faxes as they come in to the server?

    I have a backup program that I can set to move the files every hour or so
    durig the day, but the owners want to see the fax immediately when it arrives
    so that idea is out.

    If they do a NET USE -d command to disconnect, then NET USE to reconnect,
    does it work then?

    -There's no such thing as TMI when asking for tech support.
