  1. Local network drives occasionally have trouble connecting


    I have a handful of local folders mapped to network drive letters for ease of navigation. Their mappings are something like \\localhost\c$\Example\Example2 as my V drive.On occasion, these drives fail to connect and/or take forever to connect. I have not been able to pin down a rhyme or reason to when they exhibit this behavior: it happens whether or not I am connected to the internet, have just booted the PC or have been working for several hours, am trying to connect via File Explorer or an orthodox file manager program I often use, or click on a shortcut that has those drive letters mapped

    Trouble setting up homegroup on local network?

    I find Homegroups more trouble than they are worth. I just set up conventional network shares on each pc, which means you can connect androids etc as well.

    I set up each pc on my network as follows in three screenshots. I actually turn off passwords as I am only person on the newtwork.

    Obviously, use passwords if you want to restrict others accessing your drives.

    You then simply set up appropriate drives and folders as shared.

    cannot connect to network drive

    Following upgrade from win 10 1909 to may 2020 , I lost connection to some of my network drives!? Tried most suggestions on the net but none worked. To be more specific occasionally connection to these network drives are restored just to disappear again
    in a shortly after. Never had this problem before the upgrade.

    Missing field Connect using in Local Area Connection Properties

    Have you tried uninstalling the Network Adapter? Since there is no properties in the Local Area Connection, we suggest that you uninstall the Network Adapter. Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows Key + R.
    • Type devmgmt.msc.
    • Right click on the Network Adapter.
    • Select Uninstall.
    • Select Ok.
    • Select Scan for Hardware changes.
    Update us on the results.
