    Workgroup shares Windows ID versus Local Accounts


    I have so far avoided using Windows ID login (except on a sacrificial VM I use for Windows Insider(*)) as I can no longer access the SMB shares that I have set up.

    Is there any way for the two to co-exist? I can't get my head round using SMB shares and NTFS permissions with Windows Live ID - is it possible in any way at all, or have MS (as usual) given us a "new spiffy improved thing" which is actually none of the above?

    Moi - cynical? You bet!

    (*) ASIDE - Why can't I use a local login AND have have access to the Insider programme?

    Home or work network?

    I am running Win10 Pro x86, Win7 Pro x64 on desktop and a Win10 Pro x64 laptop all on the same Homegroup Network.
    i disabled the Windows ID (my outlook.com email address) after experiencing issues.

    No, not Homegroup (yuk)! Windows Workgroup. Domain server possibly in the offing.
