just a few comments...

Is your HDD formatted NTFS.

Also i had a problem before where is was creating .tmp files because it didn't save it may want to check hidden files...

NTFS for certain, wouldn't use any other format.

I'm wondering if this problem couldn't possibly be due to a remote access session to a heavily secured, corporate server that my mom had to utilize last month to do her work online. It installed something over my mom's computer and it somehow resulted in knocking out not only the home network to all three systems, but the internet connection and settings also. No idea how that could happen, but it happened... perhaps it also screwed with my NAS too?

Like I've said... the router is functioning at 100% and so is the EHDD... just not over the NAS. I AM still having problems with the network, though (cannot communicate from the desktop computer to laptop, cites "may not have permission" so that could MAYBE be part of the issue here too.

Just brainstorming... never know what's going to spark an idea, right? Haha...

Thanks for the help and I'll check into the hidden files... anything I should be looking for, specifically?

Not specifically, just to see if there is any indication that why this is not working however I think this could be a problem with SMB2. Don't quote me on this im just stabbing out some ideas. This is a report from 2009 and i think microsoft has a fix out there for it...

I don't want to go into alot of detail in this forum but Read this article...

You can either run the .msi fix or disable manually as follows:

sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/nsi
sc config mrxsmb20 start= disabled

to enable:
sc config lanmanworkstation depend= bowser/mrxsmb10/mrxsmb20/nsi
sc config mrxsmb20 start= auto

Im assuming your applications and components are all up to date...
I thought that this was worth a suggestion hope this helps...
