    Window 10 on a small network--most everything on the network is shared. For some reason, the drive on another computer is accessible and shared. All folders can be looked at but one which is a very larger data set folder. I cannot be looked at. I'm not sure what other settings I can adjust and I don't know if there are limits to folder sizes---Help

    How have you set the sharing to be?
    I share the drive ate the Root level, which in turn is the complete drive.
    I seldom have sharing issues.

    I believe that's what I've done i.e. my computer--select the drive-right click--properties sharing --share

    What happens if you login on the server, not across the network, can you access this folder?
    This will check the source before we go any where else.

    Which edition of Windows 10 are you using ? If it is Home, then there is a limit of 10 concurrent connections.
