Dear forum guests,
I have a Western Digital My Book Live NAS that is around 8 years old.
Its “worked” problem-free with Windows 7 all these years
From the end of December 2019 a new PC with Windows 10 with al new updates installed.
From that time on I have problems accessing the WD My Book Live disk.
Disk is wired with internet cable connected and included in the network.
Share and stream in activated in network settings.
With windows explorer looking at network, on the left in the explorer, I don’t see the disk listed. On the right side sometimes it shows sometimes not. And sometimes its mentioned as Twonky, can approach it and see what it says but not upload or delete anything.
On the WD disk there are shares including share public where everything, music, video and files are stored. With a shortcut on the desktop I was able to open the My Book Live and “edit” it before, also in the beginning with windows 10. Not anymore. I have come to know that Windows 10 no longer has a workgroup in the network and that excessive security measures are likely to cause this problem.
I have googled a long time already and applied various solutions such as register tweak Lanmann guest,
SMB 1 checked, different windows services automatically set to eg DHCP, DNS client UPnp device host etc. The strange thing is that it was accessible one time but now it is no longer.
I have not yet tried system recovery.
All in all a whole story, hoping that anyone of you can help me
