  1. Win 10 computer unable to access shared files on Win 7 computer


    I have two desktop computers on a wired home network -- one running Win 10 (update 1903) and the other running Win 7. I have been able to share files between the two computers until about a week ago when the Win 10 computer started getting getting the message "Windows cannot access \\XYZ --- the network path was not found". When I attempt to ping the Win 7 computer, the attempt times out . The Windows 7 firewall is turned off (for both public and private networks), Network Discovery is turned on, File Sharing is turned on and password protected sharing is turned off. Does anyone have any thoughts on why this capability suddenly stopped working and what I can do about it??


    BTW, the Win 7 computer can still access shared files on the Win 10 computer.

    :)

  2. File Sharing between homegroup computers using Win 10 and Win 7

    None of he suggestions offered have solved he problem. However, I found out why I was not able to see the Window 7 PC folders on my Win 10 laptop. It was all related to the difference in how you find a computers on a homegroup. As it turns out, the
    Windows 10 menu structure for getting to the Network is different between the Win 7 and Win 10 operating systems. The homegroup computers can be seen on the Win 7 buy going to Network and File Sharing on the Control Panel and by clicking on the the House
    Icon between the Win 7 PC icon and the Internet Icon. These icons are not part of the Network and File Sharing menu on Win 10. Instead, the homegroup computers can be found on the Network icon under the Computer Menu on Win 10 computers. Once I found Win
    7 listed under the Network Icon on the Win 10 computer I was able to access all of the shared folders on the Win 7 PC.

  3. Win 10 not accessing shares on the network

    I have a problem that Win 10 Is not accessing any share on the network. Shared folders, File server drives are also not accessible. just error 0x80070035. I have tried almost every thing on the internet but unable to solve the problem.....please any suggestions
    are highly appreciated.

    I have win 7 system and I can access all the shares from win 7 even I can access win 10 share on win 7. But win 7 share is not accessible on win 10, actually no share is accessible on win 10. I have started the services DHCP client, FDPHost, FDResPub, SSDP
    Discovery,UpNp host, TCP/IP NetBIOS, computer browser etc and many more.

  4. Win 10 computer unable to access shared files on Win 7 computer

    Sharing - Win 7 Share - Win 10 access

    Just added a new Win 10 Pro desktop to the network. It needs to access a Win 7 desktop shared folder.

    I get the error message

    Windows cannot access \\NAComp1-PC

    Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a network problem.

    0x80070035

    The network path was not found.

    On the Win 10 computer, I can type in \\NAComp1 (the name of the Win 7 computer) and it doesn't appear. I can ping the IP address.

    On the Win 10 computer, I cannot access via \\10.1.10.200 either. (same error message as above)

    Services - changed both of these to auto and started manually

    * Function Discovery Provider Host

    * Function Discovery Resource Publication

    I can see a test share from the Win 7 computer to the Win 10 computer.

    Suggestions are so welcomed.
