Hi

I have two PC's running Windows 10 at my office and I used to be able to access folders on my second computer from my main computer but for some reason it has just stopped working and just seeing if anyone has had the same issue and how to solve it if so as I don't get it

I can see the second computer when I click on network in the file explorer icon pinned to the taskbar in Windows 10 but I can't click on the folder, it comes up error 0x80070033 and says network path was not found

Thank you in advance

Have you tried mapping the share resource again?

Make sure two computer can see each other open the Command Prompt at both computers and use Ping command to find out both computer can communicate with each other.

I don't know about mapping share resources with TeamViewer i guest you can do that but i'm not sure. You are going to map share resource to drive letter share resource could be drive or folder/files.

Have you use the ping command-line on both computers to make sure they can see each other on the network?

Please use my tutorial to learn how to use Ping command line for troubleshooting network connections. Use ipconfig command to learn each computer ip address of each computers. For example you want to map computer named A from Computer named B use ping command from computer A to find out if computer A can see the computer B do same for the computer A from computer B.

ahh ok I have done that and it has returned the following results

 

Ping Statistics for 192.168.1.96:

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% Lost),

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

 

Not really sure what that all means?

You have to do it on both computers also check the file share permissions.

I have set up the homegroup and connected to it but I want to share a d:drive on the second computer with the homegroup and following a guide but when right click and go to share with, it does not say homegroup(view) just says advanced sharing so clicked on that but says it is already shared?
