(The server the below relates to is Windows Server 2000 SP4)
I have a rather odd problem with a restored shared folder. One of our
servers died last week and we had to rebuild it and restore the data.
Previously the root data folder was shared as "DATA". However, now that
share name does not work. If I browse to \\<server> the share does appear,
but if I double click it, I get an error saying it's not accessible. If I
give this same folder a different share name I can access it no problem.
Also, if I create a brand new folder and try and share that with the name
"DATA" I get the same problem. It would appear that somewhere in Windows it
has remembered the old share name and will now no longer let me use it.
Can anyone suggest any way to sort this out?
