Windows 10: Cannot access C drive from android devices since upgraded to 16299

    Cannot access C drive from android devices since upgraded to 16299

    I have an irritating problem since 16299 came out.

    I have set up full shares on laptop on C, F and G partitions (F and G on separate drive)

    N&S is setup up so all shares are visible etc, no passwords required, permissions set to everyone with full access rights.

    If I connect to those shares from my Windows tablet, I have complete access and it all works fine.

    However, when I connect to the laptop from an android device (using ES File explorer), I cannot access C drive at all, but have full access to F and G drives. Now here is the really odd thing, I can access the public folders on the C drive but nothing else.

    I cannot see any reason why I cannot access the other C drive files.

    With previous version 15063, everything worked fine.

    I can rdp to laptop and copy files to F drive etc, but this is a PITA,

    Any ideas why it should just be C drive only?

    Hooray - after lot of messing around, I managed to get access to my user profile dotectories from android.

    Not sure exactly what I did but along the way I clicked on security tab on C drive, added everyone, and from advanced properties set inheritance to enable, and allowed child objects to inherit permissions. I have probably gone at this like a bull in a china shop but now I can access my user profile directories from android.
