  1. Accessing files over Network NAS drive


    I bought a new laptop on Feb 1. It had Windows 10 installed when I got it.


    I set everything up and installed my personal stuff and set the wifi adapter to "private" in the network and sharing options.


    Everything was fine. I had direct access to my WD MyCloud NAS storage drive.


    On Feb. 2, as I shut down for the night, there was an update. And the next morning, I had no access to my NAS drive.


    The drive appears in the file explorer, under network, and several locations on the drive have shortcuts in the Quick Access menu, but nothing on the drive can be accessed, except through the web interface. There is no longer any direct access.


    I have tried a large number of fixes I found through Google, including adding a credential and editing through services.msc (making a list of things "automatic" loading rather than "manual."


    Nothing has worked.


    How do I get my NAS drive back?

  2. Problem accessing a NAS drive


    I have 2 NAS drives and 3 computers in my home network. The NAS drives and one PC are Ethernet-connected to a router/wireless access point; the other 2 PCs use wireless connections. All 3 PCs can access one NAS drive with no problem. The drives show up in the Network section of File Explorer, and if I click on the NAS's icon all it's shares are displayed (whether or not the PC has credentials to access the shares). The shares on the other NAS drive can be seen by only 2 of the PCs.

    On the failing PC the inaccessible NAS drive shows in File Explorer, but if I click on it I get

    However, on that same PC, Firefox can access the FTP server on the NAS drive

    so Windows obviously has no trouble communicating with the NAS. And Windows must be configured to allow communication with a NAS in general or it could not successfully connect to the other NAS. (Those two screen snips were stored on that working NAS.)

    The problematic PC doesn't really have to reach the NAS, but I would like it to, and I'm frustrated that I can't figure this out. Anyone have any suggestions?

    BTW, the error popup says I should ask the administrator of the server about this. I would, but I'm not speaking with myself at the moment.

  3. Windows 10 - NAS Drive

    I have recently purchased a 4 bay NAS drive. Whilst I can access the drive with the bundled software I can't see the drive as a network attached device in the Windows 10 file explorer. I have previously had a WD Mybook Live and an LG NAS running fine in
    Windows 7 & 8. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

    NAS drive not showing in the Network after Windows 10 auto update this week

    Hello Charles,

    Let's get your NAS device detected on your home network.

    Kindly follow the suggested steps below:

    Step 1: Disable anti-virus software and Windows Firewall.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software,
    you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Follow the below steps to turn off Windows Firewall:

    • Press Windows + X, click on Control Panel, select
      Category and then select Large or Small icons.
    • Click on Windows Firewall.
    • Click Turn Windows Firewall on or off. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    • Click Turn off Windows Firewall (not recommended) under each network location that you want to stop trying to protect, and then click
      OK.
    If the issue still persists,

    Step 2: We suggest you to reconfigure the NAS drive.
