Hi guys! I work at a magazine and to manage production we share a common file server which I usually access by just clicking the Network Icon in Win Explorer. Up until yesterday this worked perfectly, but all of a sudden the shared file server doesn't show up for me and is completely inaccessible. I've tried all the "standard" solutions but I just fail to see why this happened and what I can do to fix it. Do you have any suggestions?

You can click on the Windows Sphere Menu then Network on the right. This will give you a list of all of the computers on your Network. The problem is you will need to know the name of your File Server. Once you find it then double click it which will show all of the shares on that server. You will need to know the directory name of the Folder that is shared. Once you got that then right-click it and do a Sento and chose Desktop which will make a short-cut on your desktop.

There is a lot of things you need to know before you get started so as Wanderer suggested have IT do it for you.
