UNC Root not accessible
Posted on 2014-04-04
Have what seems like a strange issue.
I can access any network path via UNC convention...
without any problems.
But I cannot access the root...
The response is "Windows cannot find \\computername\"
Since UNC's are working for subfolders, why would they not be working for the root. Please note this not a permissions issue etc. It had been working fine for quite some time (years, actually) and has started to do this over the past week. OS is WinXP SP3.
Failure seemed to coincide with using Sysinternals AutoRuns and de-selecting entries that apparently had no associated file. Since then, all of the very same items were restored.
