Win 10 peer to peer there is a share on a C: Drive that now cant be accessed.

The PC acting as servers op sys was reformatted  - all data is ok annd all other PCs can access the shares except for one

What I do (because of increased Windows security) is put the user name and password on the machine Windows 10 is trying to map. Set it up as a user and in Drive Sharing add this user. That should work.

How many machines are connecting to this system?  Windows desktop OS has a max connection limit of 20 inbound connections.
Hi John,

Can I check what you mean?

Let's refer to the machine where the data is stored as 'PC_FileStore' and the machine that the user is physically at, as 'PC_Desktop'.

If UserA logs into PC_Desktop as, say, PC_Desktop\UserA, would you create a user on PC_FileStore matching that user?

If so, would it be PC_FileStore\UserA and have the same password as PC_Desktop\UserA ?  Is that correct?

It worked then.

OK onsite soon and have a extra arrow in my bow now to try if all else fails

Will report back.
Hi Fek1,

How did it go when you went back onsite?
