I bought a WD My Cloud drive back in August. I set it up on my computer and started using it. I made a couple of shares, mapped to them as a network drive and all was great. Over the weekend I created a share for my son, mapped to it as a network drive and did a file history back to his computer all was great. Today I tried to do the same thing with my daughters computer and could not map a network drive to a share. I went to my computer and now I am seeing the same thing.
When I go to “This PC” under network locations, I see total 5 network locations - 3 of the shares that I set up on the drive and two mapped drives to this device. I can open those networks locations and create files. They seem to work fine. When I go up to “map network drive” and click “browse” to find a network folder to map to. All I see on the network there is my own PC. I don’t see any drive to map to.
I hope this makes sense. Any help is appreciated.
UPDATE: Still would like some help, but this is interesting to add. If I try to map a network drive and browse for the folder, it does not see those folders on the drive. I know the name of the folder and I just typed what I knew the share name to be “\WDMYCLOUD\Jessica”. It connects as a mapped drive and seems to work perfectly. I can create files on that drive. Not sure why I can’t see it while browsing.
