I have encompassed and experienced this similar tribulations through the network drive not connecting when the network correlation is delayed. The problems arrises when a program is set to utilize the network drive letter. If the correlation has not been established physically by hitting it off on the drive in my computer on startup, then, for illustration, the Microsoft Money determine to fail when attempting to write a backup file to the network drive.
