Missing desktop icons (links to one samba server)

Hi all,

I have an windows 7 on my network connected to a domain, and i have on the desktop links to a shared folders to one samba server (AIX).
Time to time all links to that server are missing.
Everything works fine, all the connections to that server are ok, but no links on desktop, i re-create the links and all works fine for a couple of time.

Any suggestions?

PS. forgive me for my bad English.
