  1. I Have A160gb Usb Drive Attached To My Desktop W2k Computer That I've Accesses On My Home Network For Years.

    Yesterday It Can't Be Accessed With The Following Message
    "...is Not Accessable. You Might Not Have Permission To Use This Network Resource. Contact The Admin.... Not Enough Server Storage Is Available To Process The Command."

    I Can See And Access My Other Drives.

    I Am On A Linksys Wrt54g Network And Can't Access It By Ethernet Or Wireless.

    I Tried To Remove Shares And Recreate Them But To No Avail..
    Any Help Would Be Appreciated.

    Could you explain your network setup a little bit better? What other computers do you have? What OS are they running? How are you trying to access the drive ect.

    Check your event viewer for any errors. (Start>control Panel>Administrative tools> Event Viewer). I would say look in the system area of the event viewer.

    yes

    yes. if i attach it to another desktop i can see it on the network.

    the problem is just with my computer.

    i believe some network file was damaged by a worm or virus. i have cleaned the machine but this is still a problem.

    i am going to try to uninstall w2k network services and reinstall it. if that doesn't work i will try repairing with install disc.
    i just don't want to f up my computer.
