    Mapped network drive shows only blank screen


    Hi guys , i have created a mapped network drive but nothing is listed when i connect to the remote pc. i do not see any folders/files etc ... if i use my pc to connect to another pc everything is available like the users ,public folders where i can browse through them.only issue is with this specific laptop.

    The remote pc is running win 10 pro 64bit. Is there something i should be aware of ?

    Umm that is not a blank screen. That is a blank Windows Explorer window. It is showing at the top that there is nothing in that folder. Suggest you try with another device to find out if that folder really does have something in it.

    You will need to use another computer to find out if that folder that is shared off of another computer has anything in it. If it does, recheck the shared folder on the computer to make sure that you are connecting to the right folder. Since Windows Explorer states that there is nothing there, means either you connected to the wrong share on the network, or you have a issue with SMB/CIFS not showing those items. You can go into the Command Window and do the following to find out what shares are being mapped on the network. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...ared-resources

    ok guys i finally understood how all these stuffs work. You do need to enable sharing folder for other pcs to be able to remotely connect and view those folders. When you enable sharing , all those folders will appear.
