    XP accessing large TB volumes on NAS drives


    Hi folks

    to those still using XP VM's and want to share folders with NAS drives - especially large TB volumes you need in the SAMBA system on the NAS to set max protocol="NT1" in the smb .conf file (latest SMB versions give error if you say SMB1 or SMBV1)

    and also specify lanman auth=yes
    ntlm auth=yes

    Then full access to NAS drives whatever size.

    There's still some apps that make using an XP VM still relevant -- you can protect from Internet so doesn't have to be a security risk.

    I have a load of studio hardware Vinyl recording equipment which works perfectly on XP (nothing later) - and would cost around 35,000 USD to upgrade to modern stuff -- totally unnecessary expense for the small amount of work I do so XP VM works perfectly with the still perfectly serviceable hardware !!!!.

    This time of the year quite a bit of business supplying people with personalized Vinyl collections with personalized labels !!! and these days with a resurgence in Vinyl getting the blanks (which used to be a problem) is quite easy now !!!.

    I've just moved the XP VM to a fast SSD drive -- works a treat as does the equipment.

    Cheers
    jimbo

  2. Accessing files over Network NAS drive

    I bought a new laptop on Feb 1. It had Windows 10 installed when I got it.

    I set everything up and installed my personal stuff and set the wifi adapter to "private" in the network and sharing options.

    Everything was fine. I had direct access to my WD MyCloud NAS storage drive.

    On Feb. 2, as I shut down for the night, there was an update. And the next morning, I had no access to my NAS drive.

    The drive appears in the file explorer, under network, and several locations on the drive have shortcuts in the Quick Access menu, but nothing on the drive can be accessed, except through the web interface. There is no longer any direct access.

    I have tried a large number of fixes I found through Google, including adding a credential and editing through services.msc (making a list of things "automatic" loading rather than "manual."

    Nothing has worked.

    How do I get my NAS drive back?

  3. Problem accessing a NAS drive


    I have 2 NAS drives and 3 computers in my home network. The NAS drives and one PC are Ethernet-connected to a router/wireless access point; the other 2 PCs use wireless connections. All 3 PCs can access one NAS drive with no problem. The drives show up in the Network section of File Explorer, and if I click on the NAS's icon all it's shares are displayed (whether or not the PC has credentials to access the shares). The shares on the other NAS drive can be seen by only 2 of the PCs.

    On the failing PC the inaccessible NAS drive shows in File Explorer, but if I click on it I get

    However, on that same PC, Firefox can access the FTP server on the NAS drive

    so Windows obviously has no trouble communicating with the NAS. And Windows must be configured to allow communication with a NAS in general or it could not successfully connect to the other NAS. (Those two screen snips were stored on that working NAS.)

    The problematic PC doesn't really have to reach the NAS, but I would like it to, and I'm frustrated that I can't figure this out. Anyone have any suggestions?

    BTW, the error popup says I should ask the administrator of the server about this. I would, but I'm not speaking with myself at the moment.

    Western Digital Also Announces WD Red Pro 6 TB Hard Drive for NAS

    WD, a Western Digital company, and world leader in storage solutions, today announced the expansion of its award-winning WD Red Pro hard drive line with the release of 5 TB and 6 TB capacities. The WD Red Pro family is ideal for NAS (network attached storage) systems having up to 16 drive bays and serving businesses with more expansive storage needs than the standard WD Red drives.

    Shipping now, WD Red Pro 5 and 6 TB drives leverage an enhanced design and 128 MB cache to deliver data transfer rates of 214 megabytes per second (MB/s). WD's NASware 3.0 features technology promoting data protection, high NAS performance and reliable integration. "WD is providing customers a full portfolio of high capacity NAS storage solutions (WD Red and WD Red Pro) for home, consumer and business NAS solutions," said Cindi Grace, senior vice president of WD storage technology group.

    WD Red Pro 6 TB hard drives feature the following:
    • Up to 16 Bay Shock Protection - Equipped with a multi- axis shock sensor, the drive automatically detects subtle shock events and, along with dynamic fly height technology, adjusts each read-write function to compensate and protect the data, further protecting the drive in large 1- to 16-bay NAS environments.
    • NASware 3.0 - Exclusive advanced firmware enables seamless integration, robust data protection and optimal performance for systems operating in the demanding NAS environment.
    • Vibration Protection - Hardware vibration compensation technology monitors the drive to correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time, further increasing drive reliability and enabling high performance in higher vibration systems caused from drive to drive vibration as well as from the high speed fans used to cool the larger systems.
    • Longer Warranty Coverage - Complimenting WD Red drives at a 3-year limited warranty, WD Red Pro offers longer warranty coverage with a 5-year limited warranty.
    Availability and Pricing
    Available now at select U.S. retailers and distributors, the WD Red Pro drive has a five-year limited regional warranty, respectively. Manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) for the WD Red Pro 5 TB drive (model #: WD5001FFWX) is $269.00 USD and $299.00 USD for 6 TB (model #: WD6001FFWX).
