Guys Ive been racking my head on this for several days now. Issue with files sharing and discovery. Computers are both shown to each other in File manager. When trying to access I get this error : You do not have permission to access \\ ... contact your administrator. !!

I have two computers both are Windows 10 Pro. One is a new computer that I set up a week ago. Both computers are set up in a workgroup. No viruses or PUPs on either computer. All the services are on that should be on ie:
- Function Discovery Provider Host
- Function Discovery Resource Publication
- SSDP Discovery
- UPnP Device Host
-Peer Name Resolution, PeerNetworking, etc
Under network and sharing center everything is turned on on both systems with exception of password protection.


I have had Microsoft Experts on both machines. Still not accessing files.


Can anyone help on this?


Lou

In Reply to Corday.
The problem with take ownership or adding a name in sharing is that even though each computer sees each other. When trying to add a name for ownership or adding a user I see an error that person not found.

File sharing has, in my experience, become a far more complicated matter these days under Windows 10 secondary to security.

I share everything I need to share via Public folder sharing (within a private network, not ever on a public network). See: Turn On or Off Public Folder Sharing in Windows 10 | Tutorials

or any of several other tutorials returned from the web search: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=windows+10...folder+sharing

To britechguy Thanks for your reply and posted articles.
Ive been networking computers for a while most are on servers with mapped drives. Rarely ever had an issue at all. I went through everything as shown in those articles. I have the same issues as posted in this article below spent many hours waiting on Microsoft support to answer the phone finally one of their support specialists answers and remotes on both PCs and goes through the exact same procedures and still has not solved this issues I have as shown below. still puzzles me as to why one let the others in but other didn't.

Since MS gave up on Homegroup, see if two are on it and one is on some other "group".

Corday on the one PC that cannot be accessed . I noticed that last year it has been accessed and worked on after being hacked. A few files were left on the desktop. Two of those are notepad files with the contact numbers. One file is a system security file which runs fast in cmd and closes. <<< Thinking this may be causing issues. I may put in a Windows DVD and repair windows and try again plus remove that file.

Solved!!!

Thank you all for being helpful with suggestions. I wiped the system (reset Windows) removing all files. Backed everything up before hand. Now we have file sharing on both PCs !!
