    Latest Win 10 will not let me see folders over workgroup

    My Windows 10 has recently been updated. I now find that my second PC (linked with a workgroup) shows in a different place in my file manager and I cannot see all the folders on the second PC. If I try to move a file to that second PC, a "no entry" sign is displayed and I cannot move the file.

    Any suggestions please?

    Hi Penbwlch

    With the most recent update, V1803, homegroups has been removed. I saw your comment on "Linked with a workgroup"

    Does that mean you normally access files on the other device by logging in to the other device using a userid and password?

    Thanks for your reply. No, I never needed a userid or password but I could always see all of the drives and folders from both machines. I now seem to be restricted in the drives and folders that I can share. If you can please suggest a way that I can access all drives and folders on both machines (so PC A can see all drives and folders on PC B and vice versa) I would be very grateful.

    What folders are you trying to use? By default even if your on the PC as admin folders in users profile will have access denied due to NTFS permissions

    All folders. I have always been able to do this up till this latest Win 10. All I want to do is to transfer files. This should be easy.

    I have managed to move this problem along and semi cure it. Internet searches show that the are computer name problems with V1803. I therefore have changed the name of both of the computers. Instant partial success. I can now see both of the computers from each other. One computer can also see all of the folders on the other. However, when I try that on the other PC I get an error message that I do not have access to the first one and "logon failure the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer".

    In other words, PC A can see everything on PC B but PC B shows an error message when trying to access PC A.

    I appear to have all of the necessary permissions set. Any ideas, please?

    The full error message is:-

    [path to other computer] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

    If you right click network icon in notification area, left Network and Internet settings, Network and Sharing Center, Change advance sharing settings then confirm these settings are enabled...including that network is private.

    Are you using a password on either device?

    When you go to connect to device you get error on what User name are you using?

    Hi Caledon Ken,

    The settings are enabled in the private network section and all settings are identical on both PCs (don't forget the connection works from the other PC)

    I have not set a network password for either PC.

    When I try to connect and get the error, I am not using any username as far as I am aware.
