  1. Certain Updates are preventing me from accessing Libraries


    Hi. I have a folder of videos on my PC which has been added to Libraries. In the next room is my Dune media player and when I use its NetworkBrowser/UPnP button, I can navigate to and play the videos.

    After Update KB4601345, I could navigate to the video folder but the Dune said 'empty'. I uninstalled the Update and all was well again.

    Now another Update (KB5000822) has done the same thing. The problem might be easier to solve if the Dune had no access at all to my PC but that's not the case the Dune shows me the folder's name so it must have a clear path to my PC. It just can't see the videos within the folder.

    Can anyone suggest what these Updates are doing to my Library and how to fix it? I don't want to have too many uninstalled Updates. Many thanks for all suggestions offered. Winver 1809 build 17763.316.

    :)

    Steam Library Manager (Free/Open-Source/C#/v1.4.4)

    Steam Library Manager (SLM) is a tool to manage your Steam Libraries quick and easy. With SLM you can administrate all of your games and backups from one place. Drag and drop between libraries and backup folders with ease. Works with existing Steam Backups or opt to use SLM's open system for fast updates and quick access to game files.

    Benefits to using SLM over Steam Backup:
    • Backups can be updated quickly. No need to recreate the entire backup from scratch.
    • Backup files are open and easily accessible.
    • Workshop content and mods such as ENB, ReShade, and SweetFX get backed up automatically.
    • Faster backups, faster restores, works with or without Steam running.
    • Compression is available for those who want to keep things lean.
    • Built-in library cleaner for leftovers.
    • Free & Open-Source, MIT license.

    Fix Wi-Fi connection issues in Windows

    • Try a different network adapter/connection type if possible.
    • Check for Windows Updates.
    • Check for drivers for the network adapter.
    • Open a CMD window as Administrator:
      • dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
      • sfc /scannow
      • netsh winsock reset
    Also try to restart the DNS service.
