    Unable to Map network drives


    Good afternoon
    I am running a laptop with dual- booted Win10 (1709) systems.
    Both Win10 installs have been carried out in the last 3 days because Win10 (1703) would/could not update to 1709.
    Both systems have the same basic set of applications and security software.

    I have two storage devices on the network:
    1 is a USB mounted directly to the router 192.168.1.1
    2 is a NAS unit hard wired to the router 192.168.1.70

    The previous Win10 (1703) mapped both with no trouble
    One of the current dual-booted Win10(1709) maps both with no problem
    the Other dual booted Win10(1709) refuses to map either the USB or the NAS, it returns the message "check spelling"
    I can log onto to both the NAS and the router via my Browser perfectly well.

    I also have another PC which maps these two devices OK.

    Any ideas on what could be different would be most welcome.....

    Mant thanks in advance


    :)

    Still unable to map my network drives in windows 10

    My computer is running windows 10 pro. I am unable to map to the computer where we store all shared files, it is running win 7 pro. All 7 computers on the network that are running win 7 pro map with no problem. I can see the server from my computer but
    it will not allow me to map to it. All settings and permissions are set properly. Must I upgrade the server to win 10 before any new windows 10 computers will map properly to the server? Need to upgrade all the computers but I am very weary of the thought
    of having no computers connecting to the server. This should have been an easy task. It was a breeze mapping network drives in windows 7pro. I would be very appreciative of any ideas, anyone might have.
