    Windows 10

    Joined Homegroup but cannot access other computers

    I have two laptops recently upgraded to Windows 10 (one was previously running 7, the other 8.1). I can connect both to a Homegroup, and they can access each other's files for a time, then (usually after one goes to sleep) they cannot access each other. The Homegroup is still "joined" and the computers can see the other user, but when a user is clicked on it says "cannot access ComputerName".

    I have deleted and set up Homegroups multiple times with the same errors occurring each time.

    W10-pro + W7-pro + XP-pro

    Are you running W10-home or W10-pro?
    I found that my W10-home is more easy and automatic offering shared folderws in my home-networking than W10-pro that up to now does not see one of the other computers.
