    We had a power outage and now a shared drive from one machine can't be seen from the others.

    Here's some info:
    - All machines are running Windows 10 Home
    - All machine can access the internet
    - One machine has an external drive that has a shared folder
    - I can ping the machine with the drive from another machine and get a response
    - I don't see the machine with the drive in the Network section of the file explorer for the other machines

    I've tried re-sharing the shared folder, re-mapping. I did the network reset option from the system settings. I turned Network Discovery and file and printer sharing off an on. All appropriate lights are on in the router and modem. I've spelunked around the internet and can't figure out whats wrong.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    -Mike

    I create the scripts mentioned in the workaround however in the process of trying to fix the issue I removed the old, broken mappings. I was trying to remove the old and reconnect. Now I can't create the mapped drive. I've tried the powershell command new-smbmapping and net use but both fail. How would you create a mapping on Windows 10 after the bad update?
