I'm a newb to Bleeping Computer, so bare with me.
Windows updates (sigh). My machine seems to work fine post update except that my Seagate BlackArmor 440 NAS can't be reached to view the mapped drives through file explorer. I get the standard "an error occured..." network error message after clicking on the existing mapped drive.
The strange thing is that I can access the NAS device page by inputting the IP in a browser, so Windows see it. I'm able to get in there and change settings, etc. It just isn't allowing access to the contents of the mapped drives. The server can be seen in the Network page in file explorer as well.
BlackArmor comes with "BlackArmor Discovery" software that will start the process of setting up server folders. However, even though it sees the server, clicking on the server IP address, then clicking the "view drive details" button creates an error message: "The Network Path Was Not Found".
I've had to roll back previous updates just so I can access my NAS. I don't want to keep doing this. I know there's always the option to get a NAS that's more compatible. After all, I've had this NAS since 2012. It sure would be nice to know that there might be some setting that I'm missing though!
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Is it just that installing a Windows 10 update pushes my NAS over the compatibility line?
Thanks for reading my post and for your help.
