So, I've been trolling through a ton of posts and help topics, but I haven't been able to pin this one down yet. I have 9 computers, all running XP Pro in an office and 1 server. On the server, running Server 2003, there is a shared folder that everyone had access to. We had some sort of power issue yesterday morning, a brownout, and everything went down. And no, there weren't UPSs so it all turned off. I repowered the server and all PCs. All the computers still have access to the shared folder, but 2 of them cannot. They're all on the same switch. No settings changed from what I see. And on the 2 that cannot connect, i get either a "path not found" or "User Account limited" errors. Both can see the rest of the workgroup as well, including the server, and can open other shared folders. Just not the one on the server. They can't access the server from the workgroup page either. I've tried uninstalling the network adapters and reinstalling them, switching cables, resetting the IP from DHCP to static and back again. Nothing has worked. If nothing changed on any computer, and others still have access, what am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any help.
