Windows 10: Unable to Connect to Samba Shares » schkerke.com

For me and many others this includes Samba and NAS devices. Fortunately, you can enable the ability to connect to these shares by editing the registry. The short version: add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters\AllowInsecureGuestAuth key, value set to 1. The long version: Click the Start Menu and type in regedit. Right click the regedit command and choose Run as Administrator. Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters key. Right click the contents pane and choose new DWORD (32 bit value). Name the new key AllowInsecureGuestAuth. Double click the new value and change the value to 1.

Manage File Shares with PowerShell

Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 introduced the SMBShare and SMBWitness modules to manage SMB file servers and SMB file shares. Thanks to the module auto-loading feature in Windows PowerShell 3.0 and later, these modules are automatically loaded whenever you refer to any of the contained cmdlets. If you're running Windows 7, Windows Sever 2008 R2, or Windows Server 2008, the SMBShare and SMBWitness modules aren't available.

All joking aside. The issue, I have a successfully mapped network drive. with read/write/delete access, I have a data driven application that depends on this network drive to function. when the application looks at that network drive, it can't find it, then presents the GUI to find the correct location and I find that the network drive.
