  1. File Explorer of Windows 10 Automatically Closed when Browsing Network Drive


    Hi, we have experienced that File Explorer of Windows 10 automatically closed after a certain time when browsing our drives of file server. I found that this problem would not occur for browsing local drives and OneDrive. May I know what the issue is and how to fix the problem?Our OS is Windows 10 Professional 64-bit and our drives are spanned by several disks.Thank you.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Buggy Windows 10 Home Network File Explorer

    First my network configuration:

    - Windows 10 Home on a Dell Inspiron 13-5368 laptop

    - CentOS 6.8 on a Dell Vostro 1000 laptop

    - The Vostro is the Samba/Linux server

    - The 13-5368 is the Samba/Windows client

    - The Vostro is the network's computer browse master

    - The Computer Browser service on the 13-5368 is disabled to avoid conflicts

    Working:

    - sharing

    - printing

    - computer names are list in the network file explorers (both PCs)

    Problem scenario:

    - shutdown the 13-5368

    - the computer's name is removed from the browse list as seen from the Vostro (Samba Server)

    - restart the 13-5368

    - open the network file explorer on Windows 10

    - only the Vostro PC computer name is listed

    - enter the Windows 10 \\computer_name, it is found, displayed and the share is accessible

    - close the network file explorer on Windows 10

    - recheck after an hour, no Windows 10 computer name is displayed

    - close the network file explorer on Windows 10

    - logout of Windows 10

    - sign into Windows 10

    - open the network file explorer on Windows 10

    *** now all computer names are displayed ***

    Appears to be a buggy Windows 10 Home Network File Explorer. This happens when I used either WSD or NetBIOS

    for network discovery. Only the logout/sign-in refreshes the list of computer names. My Windows 7 Pro laptop

    in the network does not have the problem after a shutdown and restart.

    File Explorer of Windows 10 Automatically Closed when Browsing Network Drive

    Browsing network drive crashes File Explorer

    When browsing to specific folders in a network drive File Explorer crashes. However, when accessing it directly by accessing the network path in FIle Explorer it works without any issue.

    The issue that occurs is that the folder is accessed, and after that the explorer process crashes closing everything that relies on this process.

    A temporary fix that we have setup at the moment is to add a network location instead of a network drive as that seems to work.

    Any idea what might be causing this? Event Logs aren't giving any clues either.
