    Hi!

    I'm trying to install Battlestate games launcher but when i try to install it, it comes up with that error message.

    My harddrive died yesterday. So I'm guessing that the launcher is trying to install on the harddrive?

    If it is so, is there a solution?

    :)

    When trying to install VS Code - The drive or UNC share you selected does not exist or is not accessible. Please select another.

    Hi there

    When I try to install VS Code, I get the error mentioned in the subject

    "The drive or UNC share you selected does not exist or is not accessible. Please select another."

    This started happening after my main hard drive crashed and I had to reinstall windows. VS Code was installed on another storage drive. I tried to delete it to make a fresh install so that the error would not pop up anymore (the error would pop up when VS
    Code would try to auto update).

    Foolishly, I decided to delete the install folder instead of trying to uninstall. I imagine this has led me to this issue. I've tried deleting any other Code related files that reside in %appdata%, but that has yielded no results. I still get that error
    every time I run the VS Code installer.

    Looking for any support that may help resolve this issue.

    Thanks

  3. File History - Cannot "Add a Drive" again after selecting "Stop using drive"

    pizzle101,

    There is a work around.

    Create a new folder in the existing drive or you can select the drive that you need and share it on the network and give permission to everyone and then follow these steps


    • Enter File History in the search box, and then tap or click
      File History.

    • Tap or click Select drive.

    • On the Change your File History drive page, do one of the following:

      • Select a network location, tap or click Add network location, browse to or enter a location, tap or click
        Select folder, and then tap or click OK.

      • In the network location \\127.0.0.1 and select the shared drive.

    • When you're asked, tap or click Yes to copy all of the versions of your files to the new 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.
