    network sharing to my pc stopped working.


    I didn't change any settings. It was working before.

    Now other devices on the network can't access my pc through the network.

    When they ping \\mypc, they can resolve the ip address just fine. They can connect to other ports on my pc, like vnc and ftp.

    They just can't connect through the windows file sharing ports.

    When other devices use \\mypc or \\192.168.0.100, they can't connect


    i rebooted, I disabled the firewall, and they still can't connect over the network to my pc.

    I don't know what could be blocking them

    What should I check?

    :)

  2. Cannot stop sharing a folder on Network


    Hi forum,

    I've got a problem in stopping sharing some folders across my home network. Not sure if it matters, but I'm on Windows 10 Pro, running my admin user account.
    Anyways, I have a folder I want to unshare from my network called Pictures2 which I believe is empty. The problem is I don't seem to have access to it even though it seems to originate from my PC.

    While I was able to unshare the 'Videos2' folder by going into the Properties normally, I can't stop sharing 'Pictures2' from my network even though my computer is the one sharing it. Double-clicking gives a "Windows cannot access XXX" error.

    I did notice a difference between these folders which may or may not be important - The Pictures2 folder doesn't have an owner (either that or it can't display it in advanced security settings) while the Videos2 owner was SYSTEM.
    My user account was in the 'shared' list of both these two folders which is strange, as I couldn't access Pictures2 but could access Videos2.
    Honestly I don't know how or when they were even created and I can't find them on my local drive if they're even meant to be there.

    I tried using the manual cmd method suggested in another thread but get this:

    I would like this Pictures2 folder unshared, and if I know where it's located on my PC I can delete it too.

    Help?! Any advice would be appreciated.
