Ticket #10674 (new defect)
Shared folder not accessible - sometimes
|Reported by:||EDoe||Owned by:|

In my (Win XP SP3) guest the host's (Win XP SP3) shared folder - accessed as volume D:\ - is sometimes "not accessible", but sometimes it is.
After the error message the folder tree in Windows Explorer (guest) often disappears, then pressing F5 might bring it up again, maybe after a couple of trials. Copying files to the (not-read-only) volume also works only sometimes.
Variations of access rights, set from either host or guest, do not affect this phenomenon.
