    Cannot Access Windows Network Shares

    Three machines:
    Surface Pro 4 - fully updated
    Surface Pro 3 - Windows 10, fully updated
    Lenovo X220T - Windows 8.1 Fully updated

    • All three machines can see all available network devices, including each other.
    • All three machines can successfully access and interact with third party network devices. In this case, it is a NAS and a network printer.
    • The windows 8.1 machine can access each of the other windows 10 machines
    • Neither Windows 10 machines can access any other windows share on the network.
      • This gets me error 80070035 with diagnostics telling me nothing

    • All three machines are on a Homegroup and while each can see, no one can access anything

    Trouble shooting tried:
    • Double checked all sharing settings on all three computers. They are identical.
    • Double checked workgroups
    • Tried it via IP addresses
    • Reset winsock on all machines
    • Flushed DNS on all machines
    • Reset the router
    • Uninstalled and reinstalled Windows sharing and about 3 other network protocols and services
    • Enabled NetBios
    • ran this: sc.exe config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
      sc.exe config mrxsmb20 start= disabled
    • Messing around with all sorts of netsh commands clearing and flushing all sorts of other things

    I'm fresh out of ideas. Any thoughts would be helpful.

    Set up a local account for all workstations instead of the email account for a login name.

    Thanks @play. Is that a solution or a test? I ask b/c that is not a configuration that I can live with long term. That completely avoids the issue.

    It's a workaround until Microsoft resolves the the best of my knowledge.
