Random reboots and dropped SMB share

Hi everyone

I'm running Proxmox 8.0.2 (AMAZING piece of software!!) on an HP EliteDesk 800 G4 (i5-8500T, 24 GB RAM, 2x 256 GB NVMe) with one Windows VM and 2x LXC's, Plex and UniFi.
Media for my Plex is stored on a Synology SMB share and is mapped to a folder and besides that I have a CIFS share mapped directly to the host for storing images etc.
Both LXC's and the VM is stored locally on the NVMe-disk that is not running OS.

My host seems to reboot randomly at least once a day, sometimes more, and the media SMB share is somehow disconnected too!

I'm fairly new to both Promox and Linux so I don't really know where and how to start looking for errors.
For testing, the pc ran Windows Server 2022 and Ubuntu server for a few weeks each, before I can across Proxmox, and it's has never done anything "funny" during that time.

Hope someone can help me figure out what is causing the system to reboot and drop the SMB share.
If there is a better way of doing things, please feel free to give advice and do ask if I need to provide more info! ;-)
