I have changed laptops and the new one has Windows 10. I can use NAS Navigator 2 to see the LinkStation, but I cannot map the Share.

Error : Create a folder named "Share" before mapping the drive

Based on other posts, I have (in no particular order):
1) Made sure File & Printer Sharing is On
2) Disabled Firewall & Virus scanning (McAfee)
3) Ensured SMB is configured

The old Windows 7 machine connects with no problem.

Any advice would be very welcome!

Just enable smb2 on the linkstation, advanced settings - file sharing - SMB - enable smb2.

Then restart the client machine/s and it should work fine.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / LSRecovery.exe file.

Thanks for the posts - I have just got back to this...

1) The share exists and can be seen from the Windows 7 machine
2) SMB2 is already enabled. I have tried switching off and back on, but no change

Any other ideas?

Help plzz.. the get the same error "could not map share, create a folder named "share".. blah blah blah... problem here on win 7 PC and an  LS220D21E Nas..
No problems at all with the same win7 pc and an LS-WXL Nas...

Yes, SMB2 is enabled on LS220D
win 7 doesn't have a SMB1 option like win 10.

ideas anyone!!
user of 3x LS-WXL, 1xLS220D but no that impressed with the reliability of the Seagate disks they use...
