How To Map a WD Network Drive on Windows 10


Mapping a network share on a Windows 10 computer allows the ease of use and access to network storage content.

IMPORTANT Important:

SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support has been disabled on Windows 10 Windows 10 Fall Creators Update version 1709 and higher.

The Computer Browser service relies on the SMB 1.0 protocol to populate the Windows Explorer Network node (also known as "Network Neighborhood"). This legacy protocol is long deprecated, doesn't route, and has limited security. Because the service cannot function without SMB 1.0, it is removed when SMB 1.0 is disabled. For more details, please refer to Microsoft Article SMBv1 is not installed by default in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and Windows Server, version 1709
