Hi everyone,

A year ago I've installed in my network a computer with Windows 10 that only shares 1 folder and 1 service for licensing validation, the rest its SQL job in another server. Well, a week ago, this computer starts denying connections to clients saying: "the server has given too much connections, there aren't connections available". I was researching in several pages and the issue seems to be that Windows clients has the limit per folder of 20 users (or connections) and that's the reason I'm having this problem but, the weird is:

* 1 year was working fine (without this issue) until a week ago.
* I have 10 users max that connects to that computer, not reach 20

So, is there a way to modify that limit? I have been managing the issue restarting the computer every time a user notice that couldn't connect to the folder, once I restart, it works fine again but I have to do this 3-4 times a day.
