    2 network drives missing in action

    We have 2 desktops, 2 convertibles and an hp tablet. We started with total mess network wise - tried most of the fixes and none really helped. I removed homegroup and started over making sure ALL units were in homegroup and still had problems. After many tries of fixes etc. I discovered two of the units were in different workgroups???? on how that happened.

    We are finally able to see all computers on all the computers but are left with two network drives which show up as media units but never show up and available in the computer area on all computers. Both show up fine on my desktop but never on any of the other units.

    Have rebooted, checked settings and have no idea what to check now.

    We have used networking of some sort for years and depend on it - have been without it now for way too long.

    I had the same issue and running these two commands resolved the issue until Microsoft provides an update to fix it. This has been reported many times to Windows 10 feedback.
    sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
    sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled


    • You must run these commands at an elevated command prompt.
    • You must restart the computer after you make these changes.
