I have a network drive (named Z:) that contains various .dgn files. When I double click these files on various computers, it opens up perfectly fine in Microstation. However, on one PC it simply says "File [Z:\PSXXXX Prelim Triangles.dgn] does not exist". Also when the drop down for drives appears, it does not show the Z: drive at all. The settings for Microstation is the same for all the PCs as well, and other file types (like Excel files) all open up fine on the network drive.
Does anyone have any idea what the problem is?
We see this problem when Window fails to connect to mapped network drives (security software interrupts Windows startup procedure). Open Windows Explorer and see if there's a red X over the Z drive. If so, click on the drive letter to activate it and MicroStation will now see it.
There's no red x unfortunately.

Are other files (e.g. a Word document) on the Z: drive also unavailable on that PC?

No every other file type works.

MicroStation uses some of the subtler protocols of networking. What operating system (OS) does the rogue computer use, and what OS is installed on the Z: server?
