Hi, i'm acting as a stand in IT technician for a small company and one of the computers will randomly drop the network files, I managed to do a temporary fix by syncing it with the server itself and just told the user to access the files they need however it dropped the syncing. This whole time the Wifi signal hasn't dropped or disconnected (don't ask me why they're still connected through wifi I've recommended etherneting it all) and I disabled the adapter driver and restarted it again and they still don't come back any ideas?

What do you mean "drop the network files"?


What do you mean by "syncing it with the server"?

If your referring to mapped network drives, then check the problem devices power settings in 'Device Manager'!


Select your devices network adapter, then the power management tab.


Is there a setting that says, 'allow computer to turn off this device to save power'?......if so, uncheck it!
