    Access Win 10 from ES File Explorer


    I'm not certain that this is the correct forum for this question but I'll ask....

    I have an android media server and have installed ES File Explorer so that I can access the media server from the PC in much the same way that I can access another computer on my network. (to move files back and forth)

    I am able to access the media server using an FTP program (Filezilla) and I can see and manage all the files on the media server itself. However, I have an external HDD attached to the media server and can't see it from my Win 10 PC.

    Does anyone know how I can make the external HDD visible to the Win 10 PC?

    :)

    Access Win10 PC via Android ES File Explorer


    Open File Explorer on the Windows 10 PC. In the left column click Network. Then click on the computer name of the Windows 10 PC. The files/folders that show up on the right side are the files and folders that are shared. Right click one of them, click properties, click the sharing tab, then advanced sharing, then permissions. That will list the users that can access that file/folder.

    Also on the Sharing tab of the properties screen click the link for Network and Sharing center. Is file sharing set up under the advanced sharing screen?

    ES File Explorer: Need to Restrict Folder Viewing


    SOLVED:
    I was able to open a shared/hidden Windows 10 folder from ES File Explorer by simply adding "Everyone" to the list of shared users to that folder in Windows 10. My sharing is password protected so I have complete control of user access.

    Access Win 10 from ES File Explorer

    Help needed trying to access media files on Windows 10 using Android ES Explorer

    hi Nikko

    Nice suggestions ... thanks... whoami certainly returns my user and no password and ipconfig provides an ipv4 address.... however... es explorer when trying to setup a new lan server with this ip config and either a user or anonymously cannot find the server
    never mind trying to login to it...

    No.... I really need someone to tell me how to use the SMB 2.0 stuff i posted
