Hi,
I have a NAS326 which I struggle with mapping as network drive in WIN10. Although it seems pretty obvious to map a drive like \\NAS326\misc providing my name and password it won't work. I even can not see it in my Network folder... I see the Twonky Server there and can ping the server by its name... but accessing / mapping it seems not possible. Recently I managed to get the drive mapped but as I got a fresh installation of my Win10 machine and truly forgot how I did it in the past... Interestingly mapping the drive from my other Win7 machine worked like a breeze (... pulling hair...)

Any ideas how to go about this, please?

Cheers!

    Resolved it by myself:
    1. Enable SMB1, again: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-access-files-network-devices-using-smbv1-windows-10
    2. Map Networkdrive preceding my username with "azure" (e.g azure\myUserName)
    3. ... done...
    Cheers!

    Had same issue with NAS540.  Turned off firewall, turned on file sharing and network discovery, confirmed SMBv2. Quick Access \\NAS\ didn't work many times, then this morning it did.  Turned on firewall, turned off sharing and network discovery.  NAS map remains good.  Go figure.

    What has azure to do with it, and how did you find that?

    Today Win10 lost the network drive map on each of my PCs.  Win reported the drive was not responding.  Then after a while I was able to connect and map again with \\NAS540\.  No need to disable firewall or enable file sharing.  Did need network sharing on to see the mapped drive in This PC.
