  1. Help: Cant share a hard drive between computers!


    Hey there.


    I built a new PC using my old PC for storage and media. I have 2 legit copies of windows 10 home on but PC well say are called kus1 and kus2. Both are registered and are found under 1 outlook email as well do they are all in the same account.


    On kus1 I have a HDD labeled "storage" with the letter e assigned. I then share the folder turn on the setting in network and sharing.


    On kus2 I try and map e has a share drive and while it finds it, its telling me wrong credentials.


    I have looked on forums and nothing seems to work. (Domainname\username attempt, using net use didn't work)


    I read this is a bug because both PCs are synced to 1 email account. Fyi, I didnt do anything with workgroups or active directory...


    I thought this would be quick and easy... what did I miss?

    :)

  2. Cannot access shared network drive


    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!

  3. Help with external hard drive

    Hi Debbra,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest in windows 10 and also for trying the troubleshooting steps to fix the issue. I understand the inconvenience you faced. I will certainly help you with this.

    I would suggest you to plug in hard drive then check in disk management you can see the drive or not.

    Follow the steps to check Drive in Disk Management.


    • Go to the Control Panel then click on the
      Administrative Tools. .

    • Under the Administrative Tool Click on Computer Management.

    • Click on Disk Management and check the External Hard Drive.

    Also check in BIOS whether External Hard Drive is listed or not.

    For help with the BIOS settings, refer to the computer manual or contact the manufacturer.

    If it doesn’t work then, I would suggest you to update BIOS for updating BIOS contact Lenovo Support.

    Follow the link:

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
