DSM-G600 and Windows 7 and Windows 10
« on: October 29, 2016, 02:18:43 PM »

I hope I'm in the right place and I hope someone has the answer.

I have a DSM-G600. Actually my parents have had it for about 10 years, using to store backup files (images). With the free windows 10 upgrade, we tried to move up. One computer went to Win10, the other to Win7 (not all drivers available in Win10). But now I can't access the directories on the DSM-G600. Anyone and I hope someone knows what the correct security and account settings are for Windows 7 and 10 to access the DSM-G600. I even changed the account and deleted the file mapping from Win XP and was able to reconnect/recreate the shares in minutes. I am hoping and begging for help one this one.

TIA. Anthony.

So does XP and 7 work or is it just 7 and 10 that don't work?

This unit is pretty old and may not be compatible with newer generation networking features in Windows 7 and 10.

Oh thank you for the reply! I hope you have some ideas.

I can get the DSM to work on Windows XP in a heartbeat. In Windows 7 and 10, I can see the drive, I can see the folders, but when I try to map the folder, it asks for the Network Password. On Windows XP it is SAN_Name\Username. But from Windows 7 and Windows 10, the DSM is not accepting it.

Without a computer name? No. It doesn't work using SAN_Name\username, localname\username or \username.

I have tried searching the net for Win XP/Win 7 file sharing but haven't found anything that alludes to what the settings are in Windows 7.

We are seeing issues with SMB protocols on Windows 10 and D-Links current DNS NAS products. This is a MS issue. There maybe some relation. However this unit is several years old and networking protocols have change some since then. I presume that you should maintain a XP compatible system to continue to use this DSM. Eventually I would recommend maybe getting into a newer NAS system thats more up to date and compatible with Windows 7 and 10.

Maintaining the Win XP would kind of defeat the purpose. The purpose of this NAS is a centralized backup location. So they no longer have anywhere to back up to. As for protocols changing over time, that isn't exactly true. The ethernet protocol 802.3 hasn't changed in a long time. However, Microsoft may have (and likely did) change how their OS authenticates.

I'm thinking I need to try to get the Win XP box to communicate directly with the Win 7 and 10 boxes. This may provide some light on the issue. There aren't any shares setup between the computers. Any thoughts on what I would run in to if/when I try this?

Protocols in Windows have changed though...
