Cannot access shared folders or mapped network drives RRS feed

  • Question


    My WHS has been running great for over a month now.  I used to have issues where I would lose access to the shared drives every couple of days.  I switched to a PCI network card on the server and it has worked great ever since.  Until today, I restarted my Desktop PC and now I cannot access the shares.  I get an error prompt saying that I cannot access them and I should contact the system admin because the account might be locked out.  I have restart both desktop and server many times and nothing seems to work.  My laptop can access the shares just fine, it obviously uses a different user account. Please help!

  • You need to remote desktop into your home server, right click my computer and select manage.  Select Local users and groups.  Double click each user and unlock them.  If you need more detailed steps, let me know and I will write a step by step out for you.
