    Hello all,

    I have a good old DELL OTIPLEX GX260 with Windows NT and XP (two OS systems on a partitioned hard drive) and a Windows 10 PC which has three hard drives, 1, a 1TB main, 2, a 1TB backup and a 80GIG on the side.

    The old Windows Xp has 80GIG on it's drive and doesn't have enough space so I thought to use the Windows 10's third hard drive since I don't need too much space, I would share the drive with Windows XP and I can install programs in the shared drive. I've done it before and it has run successfully without any issues. But now my Windows 10 has updated and it has all gone, I've forgotten how to do it.

    How can I do this? I know XP has home group and Windows 10 doesn't, I've started up sharing but it doesn't work.

    Thanks much!

    What has all gone - the 80 gig HD contents? Or you cannot access the 80 gig HD from XP ?

    The previous setup I made to share the drive with the XP is gone. Sorry I didn't clarify that. - That's why I am trying to figure out how to set it up again.

    The Win 10 update you did, was it an version upgrade? Type "winver" at the Start menu and see what version you have now?

    The most probable reason is because since the last version of Win 10 v1803, the SMB 1 protocol is now disabled by default. And XP uses that version to do folder sharing and access folder shares. Go to Control Panel > Program and Features > Turn Windows Features On & Off. Find SMB 1.0 ... and checkmark everything under it. Then you can set up a shared folder.
