    Here's an example: Note the screen grab - My PC is normal but I couldn't see DESKTOP-GEORGE on my wife's PC until I typed in the Explorer \\DESKTOP-GEORGE. Then I could see my folder, etc. But note; on her PC's sidebar (see screen grab) you see DESKTOP-GEORGE but not in the Explorer/Computer window.

    I guess it works but works weird.

    Hey GARoss,
    You need to check SMBv1 & SMBv2 and their services on both PCs.

    Note: This ONLY creates a smb-check.txt file on the desktop, it does NOT change any settings and the only identifiable info is the Computer Name.

    Do the following on both PCs ...

    1. Open PowerShell as Administrator
    2. Copy/Paste the following into PowerShell and press Enter
    3. Copy/Paste the smb-check.txt files here if needed for help

    $(
    "$(get-date -format g)"
    "$($env:computername)"
    get-windowsoptionalfeature -Online -FeatureName SMB1Protocol
    get-smbserverconfiguration | Select EnableSMB1Protocol, EnableSMB2Protocol
    sc.exe query mrxsmb10
    sc.exe qc mrxsmb10
    sc.exe query mrxsmb20
    sc.exe qc mrxsmb20
    sc.exe query browser
    sc.exe qc browser
    sc.exe query fdPHost
    sc.exe qc fdPHost
    sc.exe query FDResPub
    sc.exe qc FDResPub
    Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path HKLM:SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters -Name SMB1,SMB2
    Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path HKLM:SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation -Name DependOnService
    ) > "$($env:userprofile)\Desktop\smb-check.txt"

    I created a Homegroup which fixed the needed sharing. There were a few snags creating it but none too difficult.

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    Hi Eagle51 ,

    I don't know PowerShell so your script is interesting , everything is working AFAIK but I get an error in the script that it can't find a "item property in the registry" but it still runs .....I have added the error to the top of the Check.txt file if you don't mind looking at it please.... BTW the script saves the file to the User's Desktop Folder ...which likely works with most people but if like me you have your Desktop Location on another Drive , the Script doesn't respect that and still uses the User Folder so you can't see it on the desktop.

    Thanks

    Hey Kbird,
    It's just combined commands from here - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...in-windows-and

    So, it's just a simple snippet with no error checking, but some errors can still be helpful, if you know what your looking for Obviously the smb-check.txt will be different for different setup scenarios (ie. Regular File Sharing, NAS, Router USB File Sharing, etc)

    I didn't think about people moving user folders to another drive. Might have to look into to that, thanks.

    That error is from this line - Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path HKLM:SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters -Name SMB1,SMB2

    To enable or disable SMBv1 on the SMB server, configure the following registry key:
    Registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
    Registry entry: SMB1
    REG_DWORD: 0 = Disabled
    REG_DWORD: 1 = Enabled
    Default: 1 = Enabled (No registry key is created)


    To enable or disable SMBv2 on the SMB server, configure the following registry key:
    Registry subkey:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
    Registry entry: SMB2
    REG_DWORD: 0 = Disabled
    REG_DWORD: 1 = Enabled
    Default: 1 = Enabled (No registry key is created)

    Thanks Eagle51 I have those under LanManWorkstation ( maybe I did that? can't remember ) so I added them under LanManServer too and the script runs fine and puts the .txt on the Desktop, after I set the output to the Desktop Folder on E: .

    I am old school and like using Desktop Icons for current "projects" eg folder shortcuts , websites, etc as I hate the Start Menu/favourites (bookmarks)..... this way if I need to re-install win10 I simply move the Desktop Location back to E:\ after a reinstall and all my shortcuts are back on the desktop.

    Desktop Restore 1.6.4 by Jamie O'Connell still seems to work well in Win10 to re-organise the Icons too if they get messed up.

    BTW ... I forgot to mention, if you just wanted to see the output in PowerShell and not save to a .txt file ... just use this

    get-windowsoptionalfeature -Online -FeatureName SMB1Protocol
    get-smbserverconfiguration | Select EnableSMB1Protocol, EnableSMB2Protocol
    sc.exe query mrxsmb10
    sc.exe qc mrxsmb10
    sc.exe query mrxsmb20
    sc.exe qc mrxsmb20
    sc.exe query browser
    sc.exe qc browser
    sc.exe query fdPHost
    sc.exe qc fdPHost
    sc.exe query FDResPub
    sc.exe qc FDResPub
    Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path HKLM:SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters -Name SMB1,SMB2
    Get-ItemPropertyValue -Path HKLM:SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation -Name DependOnService
