Overnight routines failing due to inexplicable mapped drive disconnect

We have a Windows 98 system that runs overnight routines and copies data to a mapped drive on a Windows 2000 server. The routines fail because the mapped drive is disconnecting overnight. Clicking on the drive reconnects straightaway, but the connection is lost again overnight. The setup worked fine for 10 months. Do you have any suggestions?
