Note: This is my boss's computer that he wants me to fix, so I don't know exactly how this error came about.

In My Computer, under Network Drives, I'm seeing this:
Tapes on 'T----------' (V:)

Disconnected Network Drive

Drawing on 'A------' (Z:)

Disconnected Network Drive


When I click on the names of the drives, I get the following message:
An error occurred while reconnecting V: to \\T---------\Tapes [or, when I try the other one Z: to \\A------\DRAWING]
Microsoft Windows Network: The local device name is already in use.
This connection has not been restored

If these drives are on a network and the company is having a problem are you the IT department? Personally I have a problem fixing a companies computer problem especially if it is on a network. I would think that this company should have its own IT department. If we try to fix this and what ever fix we give you to try does not work and it takes down their network, boy the trouble all of us are going to be in to say nothing about the trouble you will be in. I know your boss asked you to fix this. Did you get that i n writing?

I honestly think that getting a local company with the proper tech training will be the best thing for your boss to do.

There is no IT department.

And yeah, I should've gotten it in writing before I ever touched my boss's computer. I debugged it on Friday at his request, and I know for a FACT his network wasn't working before I sat down at it, but decided that he had to be aware of this problem, and continued on anyway.

NOW, it's suddenly something I did, and he demanded a system restore, which failed. Another problem in and of itself, which I'm pretty sure wasn't caused by Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D.

Sigh.
