Once in a while, when I try to open a spreadsheet in Excel 2010 that's on a mapped drive, I get the error message "The network is busy. Try again later." I can retry the open right away a second time and it works.
Is there some way I can get rid of this annoyance? Also, is there some underlying problem with the file server or the network that might have other negative effects?
I'm running Windows 7, and the file share I'm connecting to is on a Samba server on a Linux box.
