Error 0x80070035 - Windows cannot access share

Q: Error 0x80070035 - Windows cannot access share

I have a small office that has a server, running Server 2008, that acts as a file server. There are several shares on the server that give access to our 5 users.

We have 5 workstations that all run Windows 7. Each workstation has the same 5 user accounts so any user can work on any of the 5 workstations.

This setup has been working perfectly for years. Now all of a sudden, one machine has starting giving the error 0x80070035 when trying to access the server shares. It can access any other workstation on the network, just not the server. It doesn't matter which of the 5 user accounts you log in as, you still receive this error. All 5 user accounts can access the server from any of the other workstations.

I've also tried entering the server name or the ip address in Internet Explorer on the problem workstation and am also unable to access the server this way.

I would really appreciate any suggestions to get this fixed.

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Error 0x80070035 - Windows cannot access share

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
I have a small LAN with five PC's (two Windows 10 and three Windows 7).  I have assigned all of these PC's to the same Workgroup (which I named "MAIN").  All five PC's are set to Obtain an IP address automatically.  My wireless router
assigns each PC with an address in the range 192.168.2.x.  The router itself is at at address 192.168.2.1.  I have created shares on all five PC's by right-clicking on the folder I'd like to share and choosing Properties.  On the Sharing tab,
I chose "Advanced Sharing" and clicked the checkbox for "Share this folder".  I assigned it a share name and added Full Control permissions for both the local Administrators group and also for one particular user (who happens to be
a member of the local administrators group).  On the Security tab, I also assigned Full Control permissions to the local Administrators group and for the same particular user as on the Sharing tab.  In Control Panel | Network and Sharing Center |
Advanced Sharing Settings, for my current profile (which happens to be work), I have Network Discovery ON, File & Printer Sharing ON, Public Folder Sharing OFF, Media Streaming OFF, File Sharing connections set to 128-bit encryption, password protected

Error accessing NAS
\\Share\Folder is not accessible
Error code: 0X80070035 The network path was not found

Hi all,
I fixed a stubborn networking issue and hopefully someone else can benefit from all the frustration I have experienced over the last few days.

Some background. This was a workgroup network not a domain client/server. 
Also, Windows HomeGroup wizards were not used - just accounts and passwords. 
I have five NAS boxes for storage and backup. These NAS boxes use CIFS or SMB file systems. IP address are assigned through DHCP. It is a very simple yet secure workgroup net. Everything was OK then it hit the fan.
I installed a new router after the old one failed. I powered down the entire network, cabled up and configured the new router. On my old Vista notebook PC all five NAS devices were OK. In Vista, Windows Explorer, I could access all the folders and files
on all the NAS boxes.
However on all the other systems, Windows 7 or Windows 8, I would get errors. In Windows Explorer I could see "\\MyNAS\Share\" but cannot navigate to it. 

I would get an error:
"\\MyNAS\Share\ is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. The specified network name is no longer available."
Or
"Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found"

Four machines: win7 32/64 (3) + (1) win8.1

Three machines (two win7s and the win8) can read the folder contents of the fourth. The fourth (win7 64 Home Premium) cannot see any of the files of the other machines although the machines appear in the network list and produces the error in the title. It produces the same error when it tries to read its own files from Network. There are no other network/Internet problems with this machine.

I have tried various combinations of Sharing, Permissions, Registry and TCP-IP hacks from other fora without success - "Windows cannot access \\{any other machine}".

It seems an elementary fault but has eluded all attempts at rectification.

I have spent much time on this problem ...

I have two systems on the network: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (desktop - wired) and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (desktop - wired); using a Netgear N600 router. The Professional 64-bit I shall call "sys1" and the Home Premium 32-bit "sys2" for this thread.

sys1 has been in operation for some time, over a year, sys2 I just built and just now getting it up to speed. I have followed the Sharing Tutorial as well as other resources here and elsewhere but I cannot get sys1 to see any of the shared folders on sys2, but sys2 can see all the shared folders and resources on sys1. sys2 can see it's own shared folders and sys1 can see it's own shared folders as well. I have compared the Network and Sharing options on each system and they are identical making sure password was set to off on each. Neither system has the same users. NETBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled.

What I have tried:
- nbtstat -n shows both sys1 and sys2 are registered, (note: sys1 shows an extra line with "..__MSBROWSE--.<01> - not sure if that matters)
- I can ping sys1 from sys2 and sys2 from sys1 via both name and ip address
- disabled AVG anti-virus on both (no effect on problem)
- disabled firewall on private network on both (no effect on problem)
- Checked Services were "Automatic" & "Started" on both: Workstation, DHCP Client, DNS Client, Server, Network Connections, Network Location Awareness, & Computer Brow... Read more

A:Windows cannot access ... Error code: 0x80070035

Problem solved: sys1 had the service "TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper" disabled, once it was enabled (Automatic) and started I see and select the shares on sys2.

I received this error attempting to access a shared network drive - I was able to connect to this drive with Win7 Pro installed on my laptop, then upgraded to Win8Pro saving all Windows Settings, then was no longer able to access the drive.

I had to turn off Password Protected Sharing on the source computer to access this shared file with my Win8 laptop - I would rather have password protected sharing activated.

I was not prompted to enter a password when I attempted to access the drive originally using Win8 when Password Protected Sharing was enabled on the source computer - where can I enter this password?

Any suggestions?

So over the past few days, I've painstakingly setup a new Sandy Bridge PC just the way I like it and was preparing to transplant it into my existing system when I discovered I can't access any network shares! It worked fine when it was a completely clean install with just the driver loaded, ugh.

System A: DIY Sandy Bridge PC with Win7 x64 SP1.
System B: DIY Athlon 64 X2 PC with Win7 x86.
System C: Gateway Notebook with Win7 x86.

All systems are using MSE for AV, have the firewall and password protected sharing OFF. Network discovery, file and printer sharing, and public folder sharing are on.

A gives me error code 0x80070035 (network path not found) when I try to acceses any shares on the network, even its own. A only sees B on the network, not C. B and C can access all shares, inlcuding A's shares. All the systems can ping each other.

I thought perhaps when I was setting up A that I disabled a service or feature that caused this, but I've set everything back to way it was and it still doesn't work. I've also tried a second NIC. Any help would be appreciated.

A:Error 0x80070035, can't access any shares

Hello there. First turn off your firewall and check if it's working. If its working that means that your firewall is not configured. Also try ping -ing the computers.

Okay, I have a mac, but at my school one needs to run Windows, and so I gave my laptop to Technical Support and they configured Windows 7 onto it. However, something wasn't right, as when I connected to my home network, this error in the title came up when I tried to access the desktop, and other locations. I upgraded to Windows 8, believing this would fix the problem, but, alas, it has not. I am now trying to install some graphics drivers, and installation repeatedly fails, saying it could not access various locations. How may I resolve this issue?

This particular computer is straight from the factory, and has been working just fine for months. Now, all of a sudden, I can't read two different network paths. The error above keeps coming up, no matter what I do.

The computers I'm trying to connect to haven't changed. They're both running Windows 7 as well. I was trying to remember how to delete stored passwords for networking, but all I could find on google was to run control keymgr.dll ... This brings up the credential manager, but there's NOTHING in there at all.

I am totally stumped as to what the problem could be. I'm not having it on any other computer in the network. Any ideas, other than seeing if PCs can fly??

Hello All,
Strange things happened when I tried to access a NAS share using my windows 7 PC. 

Steps:

1. Access "\\ipaddress" and login in. -> success.

2. Click any folder listed  -> Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found.

3. Wait for a while. Click the folder again -> success.

However on other PCs, windows 7 or 8, I got no error. I tried the fixes proposed online and found that configuring "Windows Credential Manager" works for me. But no one explained why.

So I traced the packets in wireshark and found that the windows 7 client sent a strange smb2 packet to samba server after clicking the folder. 

The wrong message looks like "Tree Connect Request Tree: \\ipaddress". According to smb2 protocol, the tree connect function requires a buffer in the form "\\ip\sharename". Obviously, my PC sent a wrong message and got the error back.

Why my Windows 7 client sent the path without sharename, others don't?
How to avoid it?
If you need more info, please ask.

Hi.

I went through most threads regarding this error but have not found any workable solutions yet.

Problem: I can access my network shares from my laptop accept for an NAS device. Windows 7 detects the device but when you attempt to open the share I get error code: 0x80070035 network path not found..

The strange thing is that if I type the IP address of the NAS device into the explorer bar I can access the drive with no problems so what am I missing?

Can any one help?

I'm not all that good with networking, but it seems that the device on your network that provides name resolution isn't working properly (since the IP address works, but the name doesn't).

My NAS device (Netgear DNS-323) occasionally hiccups and refuses to be detected by my desktop. I just run the CD that came with it and it connects just fine.

I've got a strange problem dealing with a 2012 R2 share.  We have a lab with 30 Windows 7 Enterprise workstations.  They all have the same desktop via a GPO applied folder redirection to a share on the above mentioned 2012 R2 server.  All
but 4 of them can connect and pull the desktop with the appropriate shortcuts, network folders, etc.

So the share permissions have no explicit denies.  In an effort to resolve this issue I've added both Everyone and Authenticated Users with Read permissions on top of the appropriate AD Group object that already had Read permissions and of
course SYSTEM and Domain Admins with Full Control.  The NTFS permissions have of course CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM, and Domain Admins with Full Control.  The appropriate AD Group also has Read permissions.  No explicit NTFS denies either.

Using either the same account that belongs to the appropriate AD Group or my Domain Admin account (which doesn't have the redirected desktop) I can login to all workstations and all but the above mentioned four get the folder redirected desktop.
 When I authenticate with my DA account and try to connect to the share on those four computers I get the same error the user gets:

This batch file mounts a truecrypt volume and shares this drive on the network. Sharing is done with a lines like this:

if exist E: (net share E=E:\ /GRANT:Name,Full >nul)

However, in win 10 this doesn't work anymore. The problem is that the command

net share E=E:\

Hi,

The error is :

This expands into:

Greetings,
I have an odd issue.. a user reports that they are unable to access a network shared folder from their PC. Here is what I have gathered so far:
-The network share is from their PC located at C:\SQL2014. The share name is SQL2014. Their hostname for this example is "ABC".
-If I attempt to connect to the share from the user's PC ABC to \\ABC\SQL2014 I get the generic error:
  "Windows cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014
   You do not have permission to access \\ABC\SQL2014. Contact your network administrator to request access."
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's IP \\192.168.1.140\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I attempt to connect to the share by ABC's FQDN at  \\ABC.domain.com\SQL2014 I can access it.
-If I map ABC\SQL2014 as a drive letter, I can access it.
-Connecting to this share works fine from any other PC other than ABC.
-I've confirmed the error is affecting any profile old or new on ABC, which means it is a PC-wide issue on ABC.
-If I share C:\SQL2014 as ANY OTHER NAME OTHER THAN SQL2014, I can access it. As in if I share C:\SQL2014 with the share name SQL2014a, I can access \\ABC\SQL2014a.
-Deleted the share and recreated - same issue.
-Created C:\Test and shared it as SQL2014, cannot access \\ABC\SQL2014. It is NOT an issue with the actual SQL2014 folder.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

See this Thread for possible resolution, quite a long Thread but it might worth your time following all the recommendations.

I'd disable your AV or Security Program to start off and see if that's the culprit.

I just recently bought a gateway laptop with windows 7 installed. I installed avast internet security software and attempted to login to a work server using network connection software provided by my office which establishes a secure connection to my work server. At the run command I type in the IP address of the server, it sends back a login box, I type in my user id and password, and than I am have access to all my work drives or folders. So at the run command I would type in something like \\###.##.###.## (which is the IP address for my work server). This process worked just fine, the first day I got my laptop out of the box and installed my avast software. I turned off my machine, let windows perform some updates when I restarted it (about 3 days after my first and successful attempt). I ran my network connect software, established the secure connection but this time when I typed the IP address at the run prompt I recieved the error Windows cannot access\\###.##.###.##, Check the spelling of the name.

I've lost most of my Saturday trying to figure out what happened here.

I had a perfectly working home network composed by a desktop (Windows 7 Professional x64) and a notebook (Windows 7 Home Premium x64) connected by the TP-LINK TL-WR941ND router. After I bought a new motherboard, something went wrong. It was a Abit IP35 before (Realtek NIC), and now it is a Asus P5Q (Atheros NIC). I made a clean install to change the motherboards using the latest drivers, and updated the router firmware and reconfigured it just in case, but the problem persists.

- The desktop enters the internet and the shared folders of the notebook, no problem at all.
- The notebook enters the internet normally, but gets an error 0x80070035 when I try to enter any of the desktop's folders, including the ones on the domestic group.
- When I try to reach the desktop through its IP on the start menu, I get an error...
- Pinging the IPs gives no errors, though.

I've read a bunch of threads about this sort of error, but none of those actually helped. Here's my ipconfig /all log:

Hello

I am having trouble networking 2 Windows 10 computers together on my network.

This is kind of odd, I have a Windows 7 PC that can hit the file share with no issues. And on the troubled computer I can access the shares on the Windows 7 PC. But the Windows 10 desktop to the Windows 10 file server mapping will not work

On the problem computer can ping all the computers both by name and ip address. I can even connect to the server mapping to it using an IP address. Also I see all the computers in my network folder, but whenever I click on the file server I get the "error 0x80070035 The network path was not found". I to just map out a drive to the server using the IP address, but when I try this as a work around I also get the same error message. I can also connect to the DLNA share through the media section on the file server automatically.

I have the windows firewall open for what I think are the right ports, but no extra firewalls.

I was hoping someone had seen a simlar issue and had a fix, I have tried numerous things online but nothing seems to work.

Cheers

Also - windows 7 cannot browse the other computers when I type \\192.168.58.51 in the ddress bar.
Note - I can PING 192.168.58.51 so its not a routing issue.
I also shut down my firewall software and still no good.

I have tried everything. Oh by the way, the share used to work. one day it just stopped working.
Has anyone experienced this and have a solution?

Which ever A/V software you are using is most likely causing this problem to occur. You sometimes need to uninstall your A/V to fix this type of problem. This type of thing happens all the time and it can happen with pretty much any type of A/V software, all to often the only way to fix this problem is to uninstall the A/V or configure it to work with Windows 7.

I have to reboot the pc?s to make it work again. Sometimes if i wait,connection comes back a few mintues later,but this is really annoying as it happens for example when i am copying m2ts files of 30GB and have to start over due to network path dropped.

No machine runs windows firewall,they have been turned off in services completely.

Hello. I am new to this forum so please bear with me if I make a few mistakes. I have a problem that I have researched extensively online, but all the posts are quite old, so I will start a new one.
Basically, the situation is this: I have three computers on a Private home network ? one Toshiba laptop running Vista, one HP desktop running Vista, and one HP laptop running Windows 7 Professional. All three are running Norton Security Suite and the firewalls are configured identically. All computers are set up with Network Discovery On and Public File Sharing On. Password Protection is turned off since I have the same User account and password on all three machines. All three computers were on the network, could see each other on the Network map and could access the shared Public folders.
Then I was having some problems with the Toshiba booting slowly and some applications hanging on startup. So, I took it in to the Geek Squad for repair. They removed some viruses, cleaned the registry, and installed some unspecified updates. When I picked up the computer, most of the issues I was having were improved (although not completely eliminated). However, there was one significant problem that had been introduced. That problem is summarized below:

I've got a really simple peer to peer network that I'm completely stumped by (making me even more simple?).

Anyway, I've got a Vista x64 desktop box with a wired connection to a router, and a Vista x32 notebook with a wireless connection to the router. When I boot the 2 machines at the same time, they can both find each other and share files flawlessly. That's when I get my hopes up....

In a nutshell:
Win7 laptop is connecting fine to internet via home wireless network
Same Win7 laptop cannot, however, access my Win7 desktop - the files, or more importantly for these purposes, the printer USB-connected to that computer and shared with users on the network

Turning my firewall off completely
Stopping her AVG antivirus
Starting in safe mode and doing a Malwarebytes sweep
Using msconfig to do a selective boot with none of the services started
Mucking with the TCP/IP settings on either computer
Playing with the services on either computer
Specifying the printer path by IP address name
System restoring to an earlier point in time
From her computer I can ping mine by name and by IP address.
Every other computer in our house - XP ones and Win7 - can print to the printer connected to my computer, and every other computer has normal network access to my computer.
I don't have a Norton product - ever - on my computer or hers.
