Allow Copying From Network To Protected OS Folders

Jul 26, 2013

I like to disable to protection that prevents me from copying files from a mapped network drive directly to Windowsetc. I need to copy the file to a local drive first and I find that annoying.

I've already disabled zone security warnings and the open file warning but this one I can't seem to find.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.x Copying From NAS To UAC Folder Error

Nov 4, 2013

I have a Synology DS213+ NAS which is running well. Since upgrading to Windows 8.x I now get an error every time I try to copy/move a file or folder from the NAS to a UAC protected directory, i.e. C:

The error is: "Location is not available. P: is unavailable. If the location is on this PC, make sure that the device or drive is connected..." it goes on.

Anyway, if I copy the file to the desktop first, or another non UAC folder, its fine.

I am aware of Windows 8.1 causing some other issues with the NAS so I have disabled SMB2 and Large MTU.

I have witnessed this exact same problem on someone else's 213+ and Windows 8.1 so I know I am not alone.

Network / Sharing :: Something Keeps Turning Password Protected Sharing Back On

Sep 15, 2014

I've got a new Win 8.1 computer (Surface Pro 3), and on that computer, as an adiministrator, I turn off Password Protected Sharing for my network (Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Advanced sharing settings -> All networks). Once this is done, the other computers on the LAN have good access to the disks I have shared. However, when my new computer sleeps and wakes up, or even sometimes if I merely close the cover and open it, something has reset the password protected sharing option and turned it back on. The other computers no longer can access the shared data. I have to open up the control panel (as above) and turn password protected sharing off. Again. Many times a day.

How do I get this option to stick the way I set it?

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Files In Folders On Network Drive Not Visible

Nov 23, 2013

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 and I can no longer see the files inside the folders on my networked drive. Before I upgraded I could see them, after the upgrade - not so much. The folders are fine, I can see them, just no files visible. There's no network issues as the files are visible from my Win7 machines and my wife's Windows 8 machine. All the standard default sharing and viewing settings are correct. Even if I put the direct path in File Explorer is tells me there's nothing there. I'm absolutely baffled. I have never seen this particular type of sharing issue before. I'm a pretty savvy Network Admin so the basic troubleshooting (and standard sharing settings) has been covered.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 Pro - Password For Shared Folders Over Network

May 18, 2014

I have Windows 8.1 Pro installed signed in with my Microsoft a/c. I have some folders shared on the network through Wifi. I also have an Android device with a File Manager that has SMB capabilities.

Now I want the to connect to my shared folders through the app which works perfectly fine. But what my requirement is that if anybody else want to connect to those shared folders (with the same or another app), I have to give out my Microsoft Account password for that.

Is there a way that I can avoid this password giving? What I'm looking is for creating another set of credentials to access the shared folders without giving away my Microsoft account details. I assume I can create a local account and do the same. Is there any other way I can do this?

Network / Sharing :: Surface RT Cannot Access Network Folders - Can't Authenticate

Apr 20, 2014

So I've some folders in my Desktop that I want to share with all the hosts in my network, so what i did was to create a new users and set all those folders only to read mode and, everytime I wanted to access the folders on those machines I simply access those folders via that user (in Windows hosts I just enter the network path like ip_addressfolder , windows then asks for the network password, I authenticate with that user and I have access to those folders.

The thing is that in my Surface RT (Windows RT -ARM), every time I try to access those folders via the method above (ip_addressfolder), I do see the folders, but when I double click on one of them in order to have access, instead of letting me authenticate, it simply returns the following error: Windows Cannot Access ip_addressfolder

Why is this so? Why doesn't Windows allow me to authenticate? Is this a limitation of the RT platform?

Network / Sharing :: How To Add More Sharing Folders / Stream More Folders To PS3

Jul 26, 2014

For a couple weeks I have been streaming shows to my ps3 from my computer. On my PS3 I have access to four folders, Videos, Music, Pictures, and Playlists, the first three of which I can locate on my computer. When I want to watch a video, I simply copy it into the Videos folder on my computer, then stream from there.

Now I'd like to stream music, my problem is that my music isn't in my Music folder, I have it in a separate folder that doesn't show up on my PS3. Copying over all my music would take time, and I'd also have to redo my WMP playlists. I have tried adding this folder to my shared folder list, and to my Music library, but neither of these things made a difference.

I've spent a couple hours now trying to figure this out, but I can't seem to find anything on google that relates to my specific problem, but there is absolutely no way I'm the first person who's ever wanted to access folder's other than the 4 I've mentioned.

Network / Sharing :: Can't Share Folders From Or To Windows 8.1 PC

Feb 15, 2014

I have 2 windows 7 pc's with same login-name/password that I can password protected share fine folders between them. Fron Explorer I right-click a folder and share it to the other pc by entering in the login-name/password. I know this is how it is suppose to work and it does. Now I'm trying to share folders between a newer windows 8.1 pc, the windows 7 pc's and think I know why it does not work, but not how to fix it. This is because I do not know windows 8.1 very well.

The Windows 8.1 pc has a different login/user-name of "uuuuu ttttt", a different password pwp, a ms account of a computer name cccc and the same workgroup name as the 2 win 7 pc's. I put a "uuuuu ttttt" user account with the pwp password on a win 7 pc which has a computername pc-pc, a login-name hh and the same password pw. I also put a hh/pw user account on the win 8.1 pc.

No matter what I enter for for a computer/user name when I try to share a win 7 folder with the specific windows 8 user account it says it cannot find that user. I think I should type in the Add box "ccccuuuuu ttttt".

When I try to share a win 8.1 folder ff it goes to advanced sharing and I can share, but does not let me exactly specify the the win 7 user, but just a general share. The win 7 pc then shows the share under network, but right clicking it says I do not have permissions for ccccff"

I do not seem to understand sharing in either direction with a windows 8.1 pc.

Network / Sharing :: Skydrive Folders Have Become Associated With The Physical SSD?

Feb 20, 2014

I have 8.1 on an SSD 128 GB with some nominal programs. It seems, no, it is suddenly filling up. I have 17 GB left. The other day had over 60 GB remaining, then it got smaller and now the 17. After some poking around and thought, it seems that my making a backup image of this SSD with 8.1 and my other SSd with Windows 7, and putting them on Skydrive, it is somehow attached itself to my physical drive. In the Skydrive folder, these two folders have an attention icon on them. What does that icon mean and could these folders (whose total GB just about equals what I have lost recently) have become associated with the physical SSD?

Network / Sharing :: Member Of Administrators Account Cannot Access Others Folders

Apr 3, 2014

I have an Asus desktop computer and an Asus notebook computer both running Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) and a Dell notebook computer running Windows XP Pro (32-bit) with disk drives and user accounts configured the same way on all machines. My account is a member of the Administrators Group. On each PC I created data folders for each user account on a large hard disk (D). For each folder I set Modify permissions for the user account and Full permissions for the Administrators Group using the process shown in your "Option 3 - Advanced Security Properties".

The file system correctly allows access to each data folder to the user account which has permission and blocks access to all other standard user accounts. The Windows 8.1 file system does not allow my account to access any of the folders belonging to other users on either Asus PC, whereas the Dell PC had and still has no problem allowing my account to access all shares on it.

The only way I could get access to any shared folders on another Windows 8.1 PC was to make the following settings in "Control Panel | Network and Sharing Center | Advanced sharing settings":

- Private automatic network discovery: On.
- Private File & printer sharing: On.
- Private HomeGroup connections: Use user accounts & passwords...
- Guest network discovery: Off.
- Guest file & printer sharing: On.
- All networks public folder sharing: On.
- All networks media streaming: All networks - allowed; All libraries or folders except "Documents" - shared.
- All networks file sharing connections: Use 128-bit encryption...
- Password protected sharing: Off.

Is there any way to allow a member of the Administrators Group on the Windows 8.1 Pro computers to access all shared folders on the network as was allowed by Windows XP Pro?

Network / Sharing :: Unable To Access Shared Folders From LAN Client

Mar 13, 2014

I have a home wired LAN with the following configuration:

1) A Win 7x64 PC (static IP)
2) A Win 8.1x64 LAPTOP (static IP)
3) A Synology NAS (static IP)
3) A TP-LINK TL-R600VPN Wired Router connected to a cablemodem (internet access WAN) and to the switch.
4) A Trendnet 8 port switch connected to the 3 clients (PC, Laptop and NAS) and to the router (TP-LINK)

I have created a Windows Homegroup (Home/Private) from either the PC or Laptop going step by step as per these instructions and making sure that in both the PC and Laptop all requirements are met (required services, adapter settings, etc). The Homegroup is created successfully but the following issue arises:

- From the PC I can access shared files in the Laptop (by going to Windows Explorer/Network for example). From the PC I can also access the NAS shared files.
- From the Laptop, even though the Homegroup shows "Joined", I cannot access any shared file in the PC or NAS (it will show Error 53, network path not found). If I try to map a network drive (to directly access a shared folder in either the PC or NAS), it will also display an error saying that the network path cannot be found. However from the laptop I can access the NAS using the browser (Firefox, IE, etc).

So what is preventing the access to shared folders in the LAN from the laptop?

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8 - Boxee Box Sees PC Folders But Not Files

Aug 9, 2012

I have tried everything setting up Win 8 for sharing files over a wired network setup as a Workgroup. I set the permissions on the folder containing videos to Everyone has permission to read and write. Boxee Box can see the folders, but not the files. I am using BitDefender 2013 and I have disabled Firewall and Anti Virus.

Windows 8 was installed on top of Win 7 (where Boxee could see the videos). Is Win 8 different than Win 7 as regard to sharing and permissions?

Copying Files To CD With Windows 8

Jan 18, 2014

Here are the simple instructions from "Windows 8 for Dummies" (p. 109):

1. Insert the blank CD into your disc burner. Then click or tap the Notification Box that appears in the screen's upper-right corner.

2. When the Notification box asks how you'd like to proceed, click the box's Burn Files to a Disc option.

Windows 8 displays a Burn a Disc dialog box and asks you to create a title for the disc.

So I insert a blank CD into my new Dell Inspiron's D drive. Nothing happens. No "Notification box" or anything else appears in the screen's upper-right corner. So what am I supposed to do?

Copying Files From CD With Windows 8

I finally got a CD to work in my new Dell computer. The files on the CD that I want to copy onto my computer are shown listed on the Windows 8 desktop or rather whatever the page is called that shows "Library," "Documents," "Music," etc. But there is nothing that shows me how to copy the files into the folder that I created in "Documents" where I want them saved.

There is no "save" in the File menu. There is no support (which refers to some screen, with an arrow by Files and so forth, that I have never seen before nor know how to find, so it makes no sense at all, it must be for Windows 7 or 8.1 or something). There is no support in "Windows 8 for Dummies." How to copy these files.

Windows 8.1 Install - Copying Files (0%)

Mar 2, 2014

Installing 8.1 on my pc and I am at the point where it says copying windows files (0%). It is at that point for 10 mins. Is that normal? if not, what could be causing it?

I will say this use to be a dual boot pc of 7 and 8.1 so i had to change bios around to get both on there i think it had legacy option or something like that. Should i reset bios to default and see if that solves it and then install again?

It's been 20 mins and nothing yet. Should i wait an hour before doing anything?

BIOS looks something like this:

---> UEFI boot sources
-----------usb floppy/cd
-----------usb hard drive
-----------ATAPI CD-ROM
.......Legacy boot sources
--------ATAPi cd-rom
-----------ATAPI cd-rom
-----hard drive
-----Network controller (atheros boot agent)

This system is:-

Apps / Software :: Cannot Delete Surplus Fonts - Protected System Font

Sep 11, 2012

Windows 8 comes with a whole lot of fonts pre-installed, quite a few of which I do not need and are merely cluttering up the place. I would especially like to get rid of the specialised fonts for Japanese, Chinese, Hebrew, Arabic, Indian etc, etc & so 4th.

However, for many of them, when I try to delete them, I get the message that they are "protected system fonts". Surely, there aren't that many system fonts? Can we not get rid of or hide these fonts any more? Surely they are an unnecessary drain on resources, and boot-time extenders?
