Windows 10: Windows 10 PC Tablet Cannot Access Shared Folder Same MS Account.

    Windows 10 PC Tablet Cannot Access Shared Folder Same MS Account.


    Windows 10 PC
    Windows 10 Tablet

    Logged in as Owner(my Microsoft account) on both PC and Tablet

    I can access (RWX) files and shared folders from Tablet to PC, but cannot do so from PC to Tablet.

    Same permissions on both devices, I'm set as Owner on both.

    Is this a permission issue on the PC? (does tablet not see that I am the Owner)
    Is the issue, using the same account? First time using a Windows Tablet, not sure if you are supposed to log into two devices using the same credentials.

    Side-Note: My Homegroups also reset, when I got the tablet I created a Homegroup on the PC and joined to it from the Tablet. worked then. But right now It asks to "Join Now" "Join <My Account here> 's Homegroup" says the same on both PC and Tablet, even though they are both logged as the same account, Me.

    Not sure I understand you. If you mean Share folder (Properties > Share tab), then yes I already have that and thats where my issue lies.
    do you mean map a network drive?

    Yes that is a standard network share. If not working, have you tried reinstalling the network drivers? If you are using third party security software, have you tried disabling it to see if that is the issue?
