Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I ave a share on a Windows 7 machine that is sometimes accessible from Ubuntu and sometimes isn't. When I try to access it currently, I get the message:

"Failed to mount Windows share", and nothing more. Gnome doesn't appear to want to provide me with any more detailed information.

I've verified that the workgroup is set correctly and as noted in the title, sometimes the share DOES work. It seems like I can only access it once and then subsequent mounts are blocked.

What is going on?!
