New Windows 10 Pro PC cannot access \\SERVERNAME (Error Code: 0x80070035 - The network path was not found.) Windows Server 2008

Hi all

The windows 7 PC's can access the shared folder stored on the server but I get the above error on the new windows 10 pro pc?

Any windows 10 hot fixes etc available...?

I see a solution for WINDOWS 7 but not WINDOWS 10.

Thanks in advance ...D

Please use the IP address to access it for test, like\\ServerIPAddress\shares?

If the IP address can be accessed, please try the following methods:

1. Temporarily Disable Antivirus and Firewall.

2. Turn ON Network Discovery.

3. Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP

4. Reset TCP/IP.

Open Command Prompt(Admin), type the following command:

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew

Afterwards, open the Command Prompt(Admin), type the command below:

ipconfig /flushdns
nbtstat –r
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset
need step by step troubleshooting
1st check if win 10 machine has correct IP configuration / dhcp lease obtained

Next check if network discovery is on within windows firewall

Could be an SMB1 error as it has now been fully removed in Win 10 for security reasons.

To re-enable you need to run this powershell command as administrator
