Environment: 2013 Enterprise, single WFE, full control of environment

I'm building a custom master page for a SP site collection using a very basic setup. It's a simple responsive HTML page using skelJS (supported by skel-panels and my own config.js that lays out their settings) and style sheets for each breakpoint (wide/narrow/mobile/etc). When coding the site in Dreamweaver everything shows up fine, but when I sync it to the masterpage gallery and preview it, 95% of my styles and js don't show up. Using IE dev tools, Fiddler and IIS logs, I've found that the GET calls to all of them except style.css return 401 errors.

The site structure is pretty straight-forward:

+ css
  - style.css
  - style-wide.css
  - style-narrow.css
  - etc.
+ js
  - config.js
  - skel.min.js
  - skel-panels.min.js
  - etc.

And the links to these files are pretty standard:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/style-wide.css">
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/config.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/skel.min.js"></script>

Permissions are all the same, and all files are published as major versions. So if the style.css is accessible, why are the others throwing 401?

Figured it out, I believe the 401s were because I had a drive mapped to a different spot on the same server but using different credentials. Those credentials should in theory have worked, but I think the problem came from inadvertently using two accounts at the same time. I disconnected the other drive and now things seem to be working a little better. I'm still having issues with it loading the correct styles, but that's a separate question.

Not a very glorious question or answer, but maybe it will help someone out there.
