i have 10 fantom usb drives attached to my HP desktop. Home Premium 64bit, system. I use it as my "HD" server and then remote into my desktop from my laptop. Sharing drives has worked for over 2 years. then one boot and whamo, several drives will not share any more.
I have tried, almost all of the "letters", changed permissions to "everyone" so that is not it, and tried about everything, firewalls, viruses, etc.
my posts on this and others are very old as have given up several times trying to get to work. some posts are old enough to be under an old email address.
it is frustrating when the error message says absolutely nothing indicating what MAY be the issue. error messages are supposed to tell you enough to help you solve the problem as the programmer/developer usually knows what the condition is when HE POSTS the error message and include an error type, where the error occurred, etc.
this one was posted by a VERY bad programmer, " Cant share external Hard drive "Incorrect Function"
, NOT very much of a "technical" explanation. My first computer and my program i wrote was in 1962 so it is not like i am some rookie. my error messages always told you why my program could not continue and a number, and where to look for an answer " incorrect function"?? and " at this time?" is just plain crappola.
But thanks for asking. you must have detected my frustration about this. but then again, this is not my favorite OS as i am an ex-UNIX SA and that OS rarely if EVER fails.
