Can't access my Book Live after upgrading to Windows 8.1


I can’t access to my Book Live folders or files after upgrading to Windows 8.1. I am connecting to the Book Live using my LAN. I am still able to access the User Inteface page of the Book Live to change all settings or adding users but just can’t access the files though my Windows Explorer. I am using Windows 8.1 standard edition not the Pro or Enterprise.

Hope somebody can advice me what I can do.

Thank you.


Try mapping the shared folders.

Mapping a Personal Cloud drive or WD NAS drive on a Windows PC


I’ve found that mapping to to the MBL IP address (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX\Public) works better than MYBOOKLIVE\PUBLIC

Find out what the IP address is from the Dashboard or better still give it a static IP.
