Actually, this had occurred with Windows 8.1 Pro after an update from Microsoft. However, even though it appeared as a problem with Windows 8.1; Windows 10 has inherited the same issue.
When attempting to map a NAS drive, the error occurs with the message, network error 0x80070035 the network path was not found. After searching the internet for days and days of a viable solution, nothing has helped getting a NAS drive mapped.
These are WD My Cloud NAS drives connected via a LAN hub. The topology of the network is as follows:
Cable modem -> NETGEAR R8000 router -> TP Link 8-port hub -> (3) WD My Cloud NAS drives
Firewall ports have been opened to support the NAS drives, antivirus disabled longer enough to interfere with the network. Router has been configured to support each NAS drive's IP addy.
If anyone has any helpful hints as to how to successfully map the NAS drives, I would love to read all about it.
BTW, from my second backup personal system, the system has Windows 10 as well, but has no problem in seeing the NAS drives from within explorer. This is also true with the Surface Pro 128 as well as a laptop that both were upgraded to Windows 10 Pro x64.
1) Cannot see NAS drives in Windows explorer
2) Cannot map NAS in Windows explorer
All updates have been applied to the system.
Anyone else experience this issue as well? If so, did you get it fixed? If you did, would you mind sharing your fix with me?
Thanks for your help.
