Specs: Windows XP, Intel Quad CPU/4GB
Hello Everyone,

After successfully cloning my XP Pro drive to a larger drive I can't connect to my server which is running Windows Server 2003. I get the following error:

An error has occured while reconnecting X: to \\???????\????
Microsoft Windows Network: The network path was not found.
The connection has not been restored.

Does anyone have an idea what might cause this?
Any help is appreciated.

You didn't run newsid or any sid changer program as part of the cloning?

Can you access the share if you browse to it?

Hi Wanderer,

No I didn't use either of those.....I used Acronis True Image 2012 to clone the drive.
I can't browse it but the server shows in my 'workgroup' under my network places. If I click the server icon I get...

\\?????? is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found

is the server running AD?

if so it sounds like the pc got unjoined.

solution is to delete the machine account in AD then rejoin the pc to the domain.

Hi
the first step is to see whether atleaste you can ping to the server ( you can give a static ip to your machine for temporary time )

If it is not pinging please check the lan connectivity , else you need to login into the admin account of pc and remove the machine from domain and then then again rejoin.
