I have a 2ghz Mac Mini with OS 10.8.4 server running on our network. AFP connections are fine as are most SMB windows shares (multi-platform environment, Windows Server 2008 also on network) My problem is mainly with one Windows 7 laptop that drops connection and can only be reconnected by rebooting both the laptop and the Mac Mini, then remapping the drive. Happens almost once a day. I've tried various work-arounds I've found (turning SMB sharing off and on again, etc.) but nothing seems to work.

Mac mini Server (Mid 2011), OS X Server
