  1. 2 network drives missing in action


    We have 2 desktops, 2 convertibles and an hp tablet. We started with total mess network wise - tried most of the fixes and none really helped. I removed homegroup and started over making sure ALL units were in homegroup and still had problems. After many tries of fixes etc. I discovered two of the units were in different workgroups???? on how that happened.

    We are finally able to see all computers on all the computers but are left with two network drives which show up as media units but never show up and available in the computer area on all computers. Both show up fine on my desktop but never on any of the other units.

    Have rebooted, checked settings and have no idea what to check now.

    We have used networking of some sort for years and depend on it - have been without it now for way too long.

    :)

  3. Farmville 2 missing for action..

    Hello, EvanKharsyntiew.

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. We're glad to help you!

    I understand that you are unable to find Farmville 2 in your app list. Have you tried to perform a soft reset? If not please do so.

    You can perform the soft reset by having your phone turned on. Then, press and hold the
    volume down

    and
    Power
    2 network drives missing in action [​IMG]
    buttons until your phone vibrates and restarts. Note that
    you should not touch the device screen during this process (not even when the 'slide down to power off' prompt appears). After performing soft reset try to open your apps.

    Please let us know if this helps. Thanks!

    2 network drives missing in action

    I had the same issue and running these two commands resolved the issue until Microsoft provides an update to fix it. This has been reported many times to Windows 10 feedback.
    sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
    sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled


    Notes


    • You must run these commands at an elevated command prompt.
    • You must restart the computer after you make these changes.
