Ticket #376 (closed defect: fixed)
Network drive failes on reconnecting

|Version:||VirtualBox 1.3.8||Keywords:||reconnecting shared folders mapping failed|
Hello, I think this might be related to http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/22.
I mapped a directory of my host OS (Debian 4.0) to a device on my guest OS (in this case E:\ on a Win 2k). Right after mapping this directory I can see the directory's contents although the device is shown in the explorer with a red cross (I think that might indicate some problem(s)).
However, I can navigate through the directory's content. But if I e.g. open a presentation and try to save it in that very same place it has been before the problems start. First it takes a while, then am message appears. It says 'An error occured while reconnecting E:\ to \vboxsvr\mysharepoint VirtualBox Shared Folders : The local device name is already in use. This connection has not been restored.' From this time on I can't connect to device via explorer either.
Can you please help me with this as VirtualBox is only of use for me if I can exchange data with my host OS.
