Cannot access an external drive on the network

I have a network problem. I have a Dell 640 m laptop, Vista Ultimate SP2 32 bit, Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, Vista Firewall, Kaspersky AV 2009.

I have my laptop and my office in the same working group. I can not access my 200G Iomega external for my laptop. It is connected to my desktop dell running XP SP3, Avast Pro, Malwarebytes, Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. I have two internal drives on my desktop mapped and accessible from my laptop. I also have the printer connected to the netwoked desktop from my laptop and it works fine. I have sharing enabled for the external drive.

When I click on the external drive in the folder 'Network' of my laptop or when I try to map it I get the following message

\\DELL-DESKTOP\Iomega on Dell desktop computer is not accessible. You could
are not allowed to use this network resource. Contact the
Administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission.

Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

It sounds like a setting on the XP machine for "simple file sharing". I think that you have to turn this configuration / OFF explicit sharing on each item you want shared. On a Pro machine, it's an easy setting

  • Cannot access Windows 7 PC through the network, but Windows 7 PC can access XP PC

    When you try to set up the folder sharing for 2 computers, his feel like I can go only in one direction.

  • Cannot access a shared folder on the network of the virtual machine

    I don't know if this has been posted before, but I'll provide my contact information and appreciate the help.

    I have Windows 7 (32 bit) on the desktop connected to Windows Vista Home Premium (64) on laptop via the cable network. On laptop, I am running XP Pro SP3 on a virtual machine. While I can access a shared folder on the desktop via the laptop, in the virtual when I go to the computers in the workgroup, and even if I see the same files and printers shared on the laptop, when I click on one of them, I get a message that
    Desktop\Documents is not accessible. In the virtual, I have connected network bridged with replication verified physical network connection status. On the desktop and portable (host), I can access folders in the virtual (name-letters and numbers). The shared folder on the desktop is shared to everyone. What Miss me?

  • Problem with the PC Backup on the external DRIVE on the network drive home.

    I made backups of my laptop wirelessly through my router to my connecting external hard drive attached to my desktop, when I used Microsoft OneCare. Since then, OneCare is being abandoned, I decided to go to the basics of Microsoft (MS). Unfortunately, Ms Essentials doesn't have the features of OneCare. I try to perform a backup using the backup and Restore Center, however, I get an error message when I put backup settings to location network - error code: 0 x 80070534, no mapping between account names and security IDS was done... the results. Is there a KB or a fix for this problem? I've looked everywhere for answers and keep looking, however, I have found no solid solution (especially scams, i.e. pc scanners and fixers of registry error). How is it that I could make a backup without problem with OneCare (that I have no more:{{class=fontblue}} {.}) Now I try to do through the Center backup and restore, the backup does not work! It makes no sense at all!  I have Windows OS: Vista Home Premium 32-bit 2 Gb RAM SP2; HARD drive external: Maxtor 3200 (320Gb) hdd personal

    Thanks, I found the problem. I had to uncheck the ReadOnly property on the folder that I traced to use for my backup location on my HARD drive. In truth, the property read-only (checkbox) is not checked, it is filled (designates the system setting) with a green square in the box (on my Windows XP desktop). I'm sure that others have missed this little nuisance. It's cheating. I don't know how many times I looked at the folder that I use for my backups, forget to realize that the ReadOnly is the default setting for the file. I no longer get the error message: 0 x 80070534, no mapping between account names and security IDS was done. I can't believe it's just as simple as that! My backups work fine.

    Karena, R, thank you for your time and help in any way.

  • Make visible external hard drive on the network

    Hello.

    Here at my office, we have a server that contains records of employment. Whenever a task is completed, and is no longer needed, remove us the server and drop it on an external hard drive. This allows us to keep completed jobs in case they need to be referenced later while still freeing up space on the server.

    From now on, I am in possession of an external hard drive. Unfortunately, it's a little awkward for other people here at the office have constantly come to me old job information.

    So, this brings me to my question. Is there a way to ensure that all users of the network can access the information on the external hard drive? I'm pretty sure it's possible. I am running Windows XP. I plugged external and active Simple file sharing.  I already tried simply by looking at the properties of the drive and affecting him so it is shared with other people on the network. I was still not able to access the drive on the network. Do I need some kind of special material? I am naïve. Can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance,

    It must be configured as a shared folder for third-party access to the drive on the network.  Since you are not using a real server but the working groups (serving on workstation) each machine that is trying to access the files must have the same account that you use on the computer"to serve."
     
    BTW, XP Pro allows only 10 'connections' and it's not computers but "services" to connect to it.
     
    Have you tried to plug the external drive into the server and share where using field of the server if the server runs a network of real estate?
  • I can see other computers on a network of peer to peer windows XP but cannot access their shared files and the shared printer.

    I can see other computers on a network of peer to peer windows XP but cannot access their shared files and the shared printer. The computers are connected by a switch, fixed IP addresses that are correctly configured and point to a DNS server outside the network. When I try to open the icon for one of the computers, he asked for credentials. I try to type the user name for the computer that is sharing the resource and the password. It is the user account whose computer is loged on and belongs to the Administrators group. for example: user name (Computer1\username) password (password). It does not work. The Windows Firewall is disabled on all computers. It worked well there 2 days. I can't find anything wrong with the network settings. Does anyone have a solution? Thank you.

    If the portion of the machine has activated - Simple file sharing (i.e. it is XP Home or it is XP Pro with Simple (default) file sharing) - while all file sharing connections authenticate as user 'guest '.  It will not matter what username / password you provide, it will attempt to authenticate as 'guest '.  If the guest user has received a password or the guest account is not active, you will experience the symptoms you describe.

    If the serving machine running XP Pro and Simple file sharing is disabled, then you should be able to connect by specifying the user as computer\user and the password to connect.  To turn off Simple file sharing:

  • Is there a way to recover the EFS encrypted files stored on an external drive without the origianl certificate?

    Is there a way to recover the EFS encrypted files stored on an external drive without the original of the certificate?

    I had photos/files stored on an external drive and have been encrypted with EFS in XP. The main drive crashed, all keys have been lost. Got a new main drive, installed the new OS and now can't access encrypted files.

    Unless you can retrieve parts of your old drive or have a backup of your encryption certificate, you have probably lost all of your encrypted data.  Recovery agents work only if they are in place when the file/folder is initially encrypted.  A program like AEFSDR might be able to resurrect your old certificate from your old drive if it is readable at all.  If you plan to use EFS in the future, make sure you read the following article the court - particularly paragraph entitled "why you should back up your certificates.

    Cannot access my Comcast mail since the last update. I can access it from Safari and Microsoft Windows, but generally do not use either of these browsers. I chatted with Comcast and they are the ones who asked me to try to gain access to other browsers. And, as noted, I managed. Only my opening my email to Comcast.net inhibits the Firefox, the browser that I use on a regular basis because of this problem I can't use Firefox.

    The user profile Service has not logon. User profile cannot be loaded.

    If you tried to log on to Windows and received an error message telling you that your user profile is damaged, you can try to fix it.

You must have at least three user accounts on the computer to perform these operations, including the new account that you created.
