syco1us,

is your task running as windows service? If so, please check if it also happens when you run your task in "normal mode" (F5). Also please check if the user under which the task is running can access the shares and have read/write/list directory rights on all shares you are working with. Note that you can set these rights as NTFS rights (file based) and share rights (share based). I recommend to set "Everyone -> full access" at share level and all other rights on NTFS level. Note also that Windows Server 2003 and newer has only read rights on a new share by default. To write files there you need to change that manually.
