Initializing to Root Folders to Display

I was very annoyed when I clicked on my shared folders and suddenly had no connection after working fine 5 minutes ago. I would re-start and I get access the folders only to have them disconnect again after some time.

Or make the folder available to the Homegroup which by default have access denied.

For me this actually turn out to be a Network issue. Check NIC–> cable –> Port –> Patch Panel–>Patch Cables–> Switch/Hub.

In my case, I tested machine on a nearby port and the file/files saved fine. The patch cables and port in the switch is good after a test with another machine. So the culprit must be the port/jack in the users area.
