I’m currently unable to see WDShareSpace public shares in file explorer under Network in Windows 7. They simply don’t show up. I can map drives by address or servername and even see all the public shares by entering \<ip-address\ or \WDShareSpace\ into the file explorer address bar. But public shares simply aren’t visible by default.
Please note that they *were* visible when I first added the drive to my network a week ago, but in the last couple of days they’ve simply disappeared. This makes it very difficult for me to show my wife how to get at her data.
I believe this may be a problem with samba’s share advertisement, but I don’t know enough about samba to know how to fix the problem. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have the ability to ssh into the drive and change any configuration options on the samba server I need to (I haven’t cause this problem by doing this sort of thing, btw).
Thanks in advance,
