    Win10 can't connect to Win7 shares - here we go again


    I have several Win10-64 computers running 1804 or 1809 that cannot connect to a Win7-32 computer, but the Win7 computer can connect and access the Win10 computers just fine. The error I get when I try is "Cannot access \\Computer1" (0x80070035). We are talking here about WiFi. I know suggestions about this exist all over the place, but over 3 days I have tried every one I can find with no luck. What I need is a fresh approach. Any ideas?

    Notes:
    1. Network sharing for private networks are all set to allow sharing and not require passwords.
    2. Network sharing for public networks are all set to disallow sharing and require passwords.
    3. The network and all computers don't require logon or passwords.
    4. The reqistrys are all set to allow blank passwords.
    4. All computers are on the same workgroup.
    5. Homegroup is not being used.
    6. I'm using all administrator accounts.
    7. The drives I'm trying to access on the Win7 computer are all set to allow sharing and
    their permissions are all set to "Everyone" and "Full Access"
    8. The adapters all have "Enable LMHOSTS lookup" unchecked and "Enable NetBios over
    TCP/IP" enabled.

    :)

    Sharing drives with Win7 & Win10

    There's nothing wrong with the hard disks. If I use them with Win7 alone there's no boot scanning. The moment I share with Win10 & switch back to Win7 then the disks have to be scanned. I ever tried to skip the scan but after bootup the disks are not accessible
    in Win7. Those USB flashdrive that I created in Win7 & then used in Win10 which I transferred more data inside is not accessible in Win7 again. It say to format the flashdrive

    WIN10 HOMEGROUP not accessible by WIN7 PCs

    Hello,

    I cannot connect my WIN 7(home) PCs (3 of them) to a homegoup created on a new Windows 10 (home) computer.

    The WIN 7 PC see each other without any issue.

    Here’s how I proceeded:

    • Leave all homegroups on the WIN7 PCs
    • Create a new homegroup on the WIN10 pc with the same group
    • The WIN7 PCs see the new homegroup
    • Click on join and enter password
    • After some time I get a message that connection was not possible


    I’ve also tried to create the homegroup on a WIN7 pc. The WIN10 pc can see and accept to join but the shares are not visible.



    Running WIN 10 1709 HOME

    Win10 can't connect to Win7 shares - here we go again

    Sharing drives with Win7 & Win10

    I uncheck the Fast Startup. Then I shutdown the system & connect an empty hard disk & start up again. Then I format the disk & transferred a few Gb of data to the new hard disk & shut down. After that I swap over to Win7 & startup. Now I can access everything
    in the hard disk. Then I transferred 50Gb of pictures & videos to this disk & shutdown. I switch over to Win10 & I could only see the previous data created in Win10 but not the 50Gb of pictures & video from Win7. Back to square one.

    In Win7 the new hard disk register at 20% usage but in Win10 it's only 2%

    There's something different between Win10 & the rest of the older OS

    Then I did a restart & this time there's a boot scanning of the new hard disk. After that I can access all the new data from Win7 & can play all the videos too. I shutdown & switch to Win7 & there's a boot scanning again. Now able to access everything. Why
    do the hard disk need to scan at bootup in order to be accessed?

    If I share my 2pcs of 2TB hard disks with Win10 a lot of time will be spent on boot scanning. Is there any way to go around this? Until then Win7 is still my primary working system
