Get My Cloud to show in Windows 10 File Explorer Network

Here is what I just found with a Google search and it worked for me.

Open the Control Panel select Programs and Features then open Turn Windows features on or off
then make sure the following box is checked, SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support, your computer will have to reboot for it to take affect. See images below, click on, tap or activate images to enlarge them.


End results, my My Cloud is back. See images below.

Interesting wonder why that option was off/disabled? That option has been enabled, I assume by default, on my Windows PC’s since setting them up. Wonder if it’s tied to Windows File Sharing or similar option and if one has Windows File Sharing disabled (say for security policy) that option is likewise disabled.

Edit to add: Added the OP information as General Method 3 in the Compilation of Windows 10 Methods, Steps and Solutions post.

Unknown to me, my desktop is only a month old. I did do the Windows updates when they became available a couple of weeks back. I am just glad the mystery is solved, hope it helps out all those who have the problem.

This solved my problem so see my original post in this topic I created.

That should have a giant red flag and lots of warnings next to it Bennor. SMB1.0 is not safe for networks that are internet facing.

It appears there is also a WD Knowledgebase article covering activating SMB1 in Windows when a My Cloud or My Passport Wireless isn’t being discovered via Windows File Explorer.

This seems to have helped a great deal. I am now able to see what comprises my network but the problem isn’t completely solved yet. I am now able to see these

thanks, worked for me on new install of windows, I now see my shares on explorer directly. New updates have this option disabled perhaps, but still can’t install proper sw from wd, it cannot find my nas.

maybe the name is not resolved correctly, try the ip address instead. I always use a static IP for my devices, maybe is you can try that.

To fix this problem I had to turn on Enable insecure guest logons using Local Group Policy Editor. Open gpedit.msc, select Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Network, Lanman Workstation. Change the setting of Enable insecure guest logons to Enabled.

Also, a simple setting in Windows. Opened Network Settings and went to Network Connections>Wireless Network Connection> Internet Protocol Version 4 > Properties > Advanced > Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP. The default setting of Use DHCP is why none of my NAS drives were showing. Thank you Western Digital for calling me and walking me thru the steps.

Awesome. This worked for me. Thank you

after almost one full day of trials, googling, updates, resets, searching… I used your method and IT WORKED !!! Thank you so much!!!

Brilliant! I’ve been struggling with this one for months, Always used to be able to see/copy things to My Cloud Mirror from File manager, then one day WD MCM disappeared.

thank you man you saved me :slight_smile:

So my drive is showing all the issues identified in this thread. Can’t map due to supposed mis-spelling, network view in explorer shows My Cloud as Media Device and Storage device, but not on computer or network, etc.

I’ve tried all the solutions here (enable SMB, enable NetBIOS, etc.). I’ve spent hours on this searching recommended articles and solutions. No joy.

Has anyone found anything else that worked for them? I just want to mount the drive on the network so my PC’s can use it as a backup device!

Many thanks but not worked turning on the SMB 1.0 feature.

Turned it on, than restarted and tried to do the hard reset, with the 5 seconds holding the reset button and not worked, after that the hard reset with 60 seconds and not worked too.

Front light is just orange and not blinking during the hard reset (for both - Long and short reset). I’m still on the same point… any other suggestion ?

Thank you, Luis.
