I have 2 Win 7 PCs,  SYS1 and SYS2, and one Win 10  (SYS4) on a local network.  They have all connected with each other for some while using drive mapping.  Recently powered down SYS1 the rebooted a few days later. SYS1 can connect with the other PCs, but neither of the other can connect with SYS1.  SYS1 shows on the SYS1/ SYS4 COMPUTER /THIS PC displays, but clicking on the SYS1 icon  on both SYS2 and SYS4 generates "device name already in use"  message. Suggestion on how to reconnect SYS1 to the other systems would be appreciated.
