  1. Cannot connect to shared drive in Windows 10


    Hello

    Today I tried accessing a shared folder I have in my network from my Windows 10 personal computer. I was able to do it last week but now I'm getting username or password error. I'm able to access it from my job Windows 10 laptop. I have tried several how-to documentation but I'm not able to make it work.

    What could be the issue?


    Regards

    :)

    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!
