It sounds like an NT rights issue- depending upon how things are 
configured, the setup may be running without the necessary rights to 
write to the disk- hence the disappearing act.

As a test- log in as someone whom you know has Administrator rights on 
the workstation in question. It is runs OK, it suggests a permissions 
thing. How that would be resolved would depend on how things are set up 
on the network.
