We've been running in Multi-user mode for years. We recently moved our data to a new workstation (that is used as a fileserver) and kept the programs on our individual computers. (We moved ALL data in an effort to centralize our backup - but we're a small company, so we didn't buy a full-blown fileserver). Now, our (2) workstations continue to lose their connectivity to the company files in multi-user mode. Every few days, the multi-user mode stops working. Has anyone else seen this problem?
We have a few reasons why a connection can be lost, Jrasphalt1st.
Here are causes:
The network connection is unstable.
The file/folder where the file is saved needs additional permission.
The firewall is blocking the access over the network.
Power saving mode is turned on.
To fix the issue, we recommend 5 solutions. The steps are in this article (Go to If your computer is connected to a network and your data file is stored on another computer): Error message: Connection Has Been Lost.
