Windows 10: Network drive not showing up (Samba)
Network drive not showing up (Samba)
Windows 10 x64 14393.479
External USB drive ethernet connected to my router, Samba enabled.
Recently I freshly installed Windows 10.
Before that whilst the pre-anniversery version, the external drive showed up under 'Network' in the Explorer tree and I could create folders and files.
In the router nothing has changed.
The drive now shows up, say, below 'This PC' in read mode only. Folders files, they can displayed, video can be played. That's it. I am unable to create folders or add files.
The drive does not show up under 'Network' as before.
Sounds like account permissions. The previous account on the previous install is probably admin. You probably need to reset permissions on the external USB or try to take control with Windows 10.
Regretfully, I am afraid I have no idea how to do that... :-(
Right Click on Folder or drive. Click Security Tab. Click advanced button on the Bottom. See Owner, see if you can change the drive to your account.
I understand what you are saying, but in this case 'properties' look different.
Plug in the USB to your PC and try this. Being a Network drive is why you can't access the data.
If I want full access on my router attached USB drive I have to log into it using my routers admin account.
Sounds like you're no longer logged into the shares using an admin account for the router.
Try entering the IP address of the drive \\192.168.1.xxx\ into Windows Explorer to see if you can force a login prompt to show.
That's normal , if you're not logged in correctly , windows will still see the DLNA media server as available and stream from it.
You still need to force a login to get full access to the drive.
I give up. Forget it. Spent way too much time on this. Unable to restore the old situation for one reason or the other.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback.
I have a peculiar Samba share issue.
I was running Windows 7 on my laptop. I have a file server running Linux and Samba. When I open the Network icon in Windows 7, I see my server there and I can open it and access the associated folder shares.
Not sure if here or the Ubuntu forums is the correct place to post this, so I'm posting to both.
I have a file server running Ubuntu Server 14.04, with Samba set up for Windows file shares. I have it all set up to do mostly what I want, but...
Someone please help me.
