Windows 7: Win 7 & Nas Drive

Win 7 & Nas Drive

Hi All

Using Win 7 I cannot access my Nas Vantec drive. I can see the drive but when I click to access it I get a message that I do not have the permissions to access the drive.

The drive works perfectly well when I boot to my Winxp pro OS.

The drive is showing on the network, the workgroup is "MSHOME" as it has always been.

What do I have to change in Win 7 to get it to work.

Also my other computers shared folder are not available to Windows 7. I have been poking around the forums but not really finding a solution to this yet. My internet is working fine, so my NIC card is running fine.

Thanks Mike H

Just to clarify - all of your computers belong to the MSHOME workgroup? You've verified that on each computer, and the NAS (if applicable)? Usually, if shared folders/computers don't appear, it's either a workgroup mismatch or a firewall problem.

Ok Sorry , yes all computers are on "MSHOME" workgroup, NAS is on "MSHOME" also , I have check it . I have 2 other computer on my network on workgroup "MSHOME", I can see all shared folders and drives and can access them all. The NAS drive is accessable under Win XP Pro, but not Windows 7. the only firewall that is running is on Win 7.

What type of network does your Windows 7 computer belong to? Is it home, public, or work?

My network is a home network, I just turned off the Win 7 firewall, and it let me into the NAS drive, for about a minute, then I closed the drive and went to open it again and I get that error message again?

Do you have homegroup enabled? If so, try disabling it.
