Last Night, I upgradet my Cloud Mirror device to Cloud OS5, without any problems. I use the device to back up my large library of Photos and 2 Windows 10 Pro Cpmputers. Both Windows Machines are Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.450). Additionally, i connect a MBP late 2017 (latest Mac os Catalina)to the Photo Share, not out of necessity, more for test reasons.The one Windows 10 Laptop connects fast and without any hesitation to the shares. The same does the Mac.I can freely roam the folders disconnect and re-connect.
But not the main computer, a Windows 10 PC which connects hardwired. The machine sees, refreshes and lists the shared device/folder but does not let me connect to them. I added the device with hostname, user and password to Windows Credentials, which makes the difference that a login window appears, letting me enter the same user and password I successfully entered on the other 2 devices, but to no avail: “Wrong user or password”. I tried to connect with the hostname AND the IP, the machine pings the device without any problem. But no connection.
I did reset the system settings, and even restored an older settings-backup of this device. No Joy. I checked all relevant services, none were off, i played with all SMB settings - but what worked only yesterday morning, hell what worked flawlessly the last years, does no longer work today. I should never have pushed that upgrade button!
I tried to check and copy all the settings and working services on the laptop, equally to no avail. Same subnet, same Workgroup, same DNS. It just won’t let me in, which is driving me crazy. Is there no way of restoring the old OS? Does anyone of you have an idea what i might have overseen?
