Losing File Shares in Server 2003

We are losing Server 2003 file shares randomly. When we look at the folder that is supposed to be shared, the hand is missing. When we right-click the folder, we do not get the "Sharing" option. When we reboot the server, all the shares return. Any thoughts?

Check if the server service is started in control panel -> administrative tools -> services.
If when you lose the shares the service is down, it can be the DEP.


Before disabling it, be sure why this is happening, for example for me it was (probably) a machine not member of the domain that accesses (rightfully) the server's share, so I had to disable DEP in order to make all work.
