    Please see the following as I had mentioned in the thread before. What are your results when you do the first one, and then what does it show for the second command that is in the Administrator tools.

    There are two basic ways to see which files on SMB shares are being accessed:[CLI] The openfiles command.[GUI] The Open Files object under Computer Management (compmgmt.msc) => Shared Folders => Open Files.

    The details are that those two items I posted again, are for checking SMB/CIFS in the Command Window. The other one is for checking shared folders and computers within Windows and located in Administrative tools. We could be past this already, if you would have ran either of the two commands and show a screenshot unaltered, for us to see what is going on.

    If you have any third party software or Internet Security running that can make changes to the Firewall, you have settings in Advanced Sharing disabled, your network adapter is set to Public, not Private, all of that can add up to finding the answer to your question in about five to ten minutes.

    Openfiles in the Command Window shows shared folders on the network, same as net view /all. The other way is in Administrative tools and pretty much self explanatory.

    Screenshot above showing two laptop windows 10 (my work, and my private one) accessing shared folder

    I did test with another desktop which has windows 7 , can't access the shared folder

    If you have any third party software or Internet Security running that can make changes to the Firewall,
    Nothing all removed and disabled

    What does it show for compmgmt.msc under Administrative tools? Also make sure that you have the username and password set in your Profile management in windows.

    Now this looks kind of promising. It is styled after the Linux Samba manager.

    You are not per chance running the OS in a Virtual Machine? Just curious because of the srive A.

    The Windows 7 machine may be simple. As I posted in the beginning about the first part being thinking questions. That is hiw I look at the problem when tracking down. The majority of answers is jut looking at other help sit s that others have had the same problem.
