  1. How do I set security to access a mapped drive on another network computer


    I have set up a private network and a mapped drive on another network computer. I can see the mapped drive from the my PC in my network locations. When I try to open the mapped drive from my PC, I get a "Windows cannot access this device" since I do not have permission error. The drive is set with read/write permissions on it's computer and I can find no settings on my computer to provide permissions for that device. How can I turn on the appropriate permissions to use the drive?

    :)

    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.

    Remote access to my (local) server's folders

    But what if he tries to access this mapped drive when he is not on the same subnet of his server ?

    Unable to map Network Shares Windows 10


    Hi,
    I've got 2 Western Digital Network drives hard wired on my network, a My Book World and an EX2.


    Since upgrading to Windows 10 I've had intermittent problems viewing and setting network drives. I've read a lot of other posts and tried a number of things suggested without success. WD Support have run out of ideas.

    The WD Discovery tool finds the Network drives, but the box to map network drive is greyed out. I can access the desktop control panel from my browser. If I try to add a network location the drives are not listed. If I try to add the drive letter L: \\WDMYCLOUDEX2\Public the network path is not found?

    I have another Windows 10 computer on the network which can access the drives without issue - so it must be a setting on my PC. Tried disabling my Kaspersky security - still not being seen?


    I suspect that this has been as a result of a windows upgrade?

    Anybody had similar issues?
