    Unable to Add NEw Drive Mappings or even see NAS in Windows Explorer w


    Hi,

    I have a Synology NAS that hld all our shared data. It has numerous folders including one for backups.

    Before moving to Windows 10 we had simple profiles on our PCs i.e. Phil, Teresa, Guest etc.. with corresponding User names on the NAS. The Pc profile and the NAs user had identical Names and Passwords and all was OK.

    Even then sometimes you would not always see the NAS when opening Windows Explorer but rebooting the PC or logging on or off usually solved the problem.

    I think it was OK when we first moved to Windows 10 but when we had the main PC rebuilt and my son setup the profiles and included the microsoft ID as part of the profile it all started to go wrong.

    I now have the following situation.

    I have a profile on the PC that can see only 4 of my many drive mappings.
    I can no longer see the NAS as a device. I see the maim PC and any other PC that is turned on but no NAS
    My wife has the same problem.

    Now here is the weird bit. I then added a NEW profile on my Wife's laptop, while the PC was getting new memory. Initially I could not see the drives on this either. but I had a brain wave and created a NEW user ID on the NAS and a NEW profile on the laptop that used my Microsoft account email and BINGO I can now see all the drives of the NAS when I use this profile on the laptop.

    When I changed the Profile on the Pc to be the same no change. What ever NEW ID I create, with or without a Microsoft account I get the follwoing message when I try and use that NEw profile:

    The User Profile service failed the sign-in.

    User profile cannot be loaded

    I contacted Synology and that taled about Master browser and that my PC probably was the master browser and now its not. They said make the NAS the master browser and it should work. I did that and it DIDN'T work...

    Can anyone help..

    As I can not see tha NAS my backups to a share called BACKUP no longer work

    :)

    I can't use windows explorer or network drive mapping to access my NAS drive anymore since upgrading to windows 10

    I have upgraded two laptops to Windows 10 from Windows 7. I never had a problem accessing a D-Link 320 NAS with Windows 7 (or 8.1 on a third laptop). On Windows 7 I had mapped 4 network drives on the NAS but after the upgrade although they were still showing
    as mapped I could not access them. After deleting the mapping I am unable to see the NAS to map them again.

    Since the upgrade (?) the Samsung will not see the NAS at all or the other Windows 10 laptop.

    The older laptop (Advent) will eventually see the drive but it takes some time to identify all the files and allow access. Initially using the File Explorer all the file names are preceded with a X on the icon and some of the folders don't appear, and those
    that do state that there are no files in the folder.

    Windows 10 explorer network error 0x80070035 the network path was not found

    Actually, this had occurred with Windows 8.1 Pro after an update from Microsoft. However, even though it appeared as a problem with Windows 8.1; Windows 10 has inherited the same issue.

    When attempting to map a NAS drive, the error occurs with the message, network error 0x80070035 the network path was not found. After searching the internet for days and days of a viable solution, nothing has helped getting a NAS drive mapped.

    These are WD My Cloud NAS drives connected via a LAN hub. The topology of the network is as follows:

    Cable modem -> NETGEAR R8000 router -> TP Link 8-port hub -> (3) WD My Cloud NAS drives

    Firewall ports have been opened to support the NAS drives, antivirus disabled longer enough to interfere with the network. Router has been configured to support each NAS drive's IP addy.

    If anyone has any helpful hints as to how to successfully map the NAS drives, I would love to read all about it.

    BTW, from my second backup personal system, the system has Windows 10 as well, but has no problem in seeing the NAS drives from within explorer. This is also true with the Surface Pro 128 as well as a laptop that both were upgraded to Windows 10 Pro x64.

    Recap:

    1) Cannot see NAS drives in Windows explorer

    2) Cannot map NAS in Windows explorer

    All updates have been applied to the system.

    Anyone else experience this issue as well? If so, did you get it fixed? If you did, would you mind sharing your fix with me?

    Thanks for your help.

    Making the NAS the Master Browser should help in this problem. Did you restart everything once you made the Master Browser change? If not then you need to do that. Power down all network attached machines, start the NAS first, give it some time to get up and running fully, then one by one start the attached PCs. See if that changes things for you.

    SIMPLE SOLUTION:Windows + S (Opens Search)Type " manage windows credentials " (without quotes) this opens the control panel > all control panel items > credential managerThen click on Add a Windows CredentialFill in the details for the Network storage device you want to connect to. * I use a Buffalo Linkstation so used the following ( Note the double \\ NetworkName \ Drive or partition name)Thats it. You can now create a shortcut to the NAS or create a MAP to the drive in the usual way, as long as the username and password are correct Windows 10 will be granted access. Hope basic explainer helps.

    zero42..

    sorry can you explain this in more detail/simpler. I am not exactly sure what you are asking me to do. I did see a fix on another site that was adding a new item in regedit. That didn't work either.

    I did include images with my original post, but for some reason these are not displaying correctly.

    You need to open the Windows Credential Manager, which you can do from the control panel or by typing MANAGE WINDOWS CREDENTIALS into Cortana's search. Once you have opened the Credentials Manager, click on ADD A WINDOWS CREDENTIAL, then add the NAS/Network location + USER NAME + PASSWORD thats it.

    You must use the correct syntax for the network device you are trying to access, so \\DEVICENAME\FOLDER

    Sorry... Had a go in the meantime and did figure out what you were saying. There was already a NAS listed. So i looked at the details and it had my old / local profile (Phil). I guessed this was the original profile that worked. So changed it to my new microsoft one of Phil Darley and changed the password. all this did was lose ALL my maping and still could not see the bloody NAS.

    I then created a NEW credential using the NAS IP as the device name and my new MS ID and PW that got my mappings back. but still cannot see the NAS

    Anymore ideas??

    PS my credential now look like this
