Can not see folders/files on LAN-connected computer (Windows 10)
Posted on 2016-11-15
My home LAN has two computers, connected by a router. My laptop can see folders and files on my desktop computer, but no matter what I have tried, the desktop computer can see the laptop in the network, but can not see ANYTHING inside the laptop. Both are running the latest Windows 10 update (slow ring).
Based on various efforts and reading, I have installed SMB 1.0 (Samba), made sure File and Printer sharing are turned on, temporarily turned of Windows Firewall on the laptop, turned off password protection on the sharing temporarily, and created a homegroup that is shared on the two computers. Still, I see the laptop from the desktop computer, but none of the internal contents, even though I shared the root folder, as well as sharing four areas in the homegroup sharing options. I used to be able to see and exchange files between the computers, but perhaps Microsoft updated some behaviors?
