    Shared folders access problems after upgrade to Windows 10

    I have a small network of 5 computers, one of them acting as 'server' to share a folder. This 'server's mapped folder was previously fully accessible to the other computers (Windows 7 Home and Windows 10 Home). Yesterday, I upgraded the 'server' to Windows 10 Pro. Since that time, Windows 10 computers are having difficulty accessing that folder. They are prompting for a username/password (which they previously did not do) and they're not accepting any credentials. (picture attached). What is strange is that it using the current PC as the Domain and still does not accept local user passwords.

    I tried setting up new shares but even that asks for credentials and then fails with the same error. Windows 7 computers have no problem accessing that mapped drive.

    Help me please!
