  1. Map Network Drive Unsuccessful


    I am running Windows 10 Home, Version 20H2, OS Build 19042.685


    I have been trying to map a network drive but keep getting the error: "0x80070035: the network path was not found"


    The network drive in question has been previously mapped but mysteriously disappeared from the network following one of the many Win 10 updates, so I know that the network path is correct, but I have been unable to re-map it.


    Whilst searching for a solution I discovered that in order to map a network drive, the SMP protocol is required to be installed, but I also discovered that SMPv1 has been disabled from OS Build 1709 onwards because of known vulnerabilities and that I need to have SMPv2 installed.


    Navigating to "Control panel>Programs>Turn Windows features on or off" confirmed that SMPv1 was installed.


    I followed the instructions for updating to SMPv2 and in due course, my computer restarted.


    Then in order to check that SMPv2 had been installed, in Powershell I entered the command: "Get-SmbServerConfiguration Select EnableSMB2Protocol" which returned "True" from which I assumed that SMPv2 had been successfully installed


    Then in order to enable SMPv2, I entered the command: "Set-SmbServerConfiguration -EnableSMB2Protocol $true" and confirmed by entering "Y"


    I then tried once more to map the network drive, but still got the error: "0x80070035: the network path was not found"


    I checked once more in "Control panel>Programs>Turn Windows features on or off" only to find that SMPv1 was still apparently installed!


    So now I am completely stuck. Is SMPv2 installed or not? What more do I need to do map my network drive please?

    :)

    Trouble Mapping Network Drive

    I have a WD NAS drive connected to my router and have mapped it on three of my computers. I just setup another laptop with Windows 10 and have updated it to 1809 and when I tired Mapping a network drive nothing is displayed in the browse window except the
    computer I am currently using. The drive is shown under network locations in File Explorer but not when you select map network drive and browse. I right clicked on the drive and selected properties and noted the IP address and went back into Map network drive
    but instead of selecting browse I entered the IP address but it still does not map the drive. The strange part is if I go to any of the computers that already has the network drive mapped and select Map network drive and select browse none of those computers
    show the drive either but you can select the mapped drive in the drive list in file explorer and it works just fine.

    I have read several articles both here and elsewhere and tried the suggestions but nothing works. Network discovery is turned on as is file sharing and also checked if all three boxes under SMB file sharing support in Windows features were also checked and
    they are. I have mapped several computers to several different drives over the years and anytime the drive was not listed it was always easy to go into Network Sharing Centre and find the problem but everything seems to be as it should so would appreciate
    if someone can suggest something I may have overlooked.

    Thank you

    Mapped Drives Issues

    To clarify .... the issue is the Windows 10 OS. It is with Windows File Explorer. The Mapped drives used to appear in File Explorer's left panel list of drives and folders. Two days ago File explorer stopped show the mapped drives. so not they don;t appear in the list of Drives and folders.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I did, it has no effect. I also check the NAS devices they support SMB 2.0. Also I have several other computers on my home network they work fine with the mapped drives and They do not have SMB 1 turned on. So it is something that happened to the computer in question.

    Map Network Drive Unsuccessful

    Work Mapped drives not working at home.


    Hello All.

    I have a user at work that has a laptop as her main work use (docking station at work, then takes it home to work at home).
    we have a list of mapped network drives that we use here, including a personal drive.

    however when this user gets home or off the network, the personal drive seems to become inactive/go missing.

    there are no USB drives that interfere with the network drives, and i am lost looking for solutions.

    any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks.
