Asus RT USB HDD and Win10 SMB 1.0 Client...

    This is to share my newbie experience with Win10...

    I recently and reluctantly migrated from Win7 to Win10. I knew I needed to enable the Win10 feature SMB 1.0 Client to enable Explorer access to folders on my RT-AC86U USB 3.0 HDD. Asus even has a FAQ link now in the router firmware to alert Win10 users to do this. So I did it and it worked just fine.

    Until Win10 undid it! What a pain in the butt. I spent a few hours flailing around with all related networking, trying to recover Explorer access to folders on my RT-NAS. No joy, although a folder I had pinned under Quick Access still worked, making it seem like I had partial access, or what was working was now partially broken instead of being totally disabled.

    Finally, I checked on the Win10 SMB 1.0 Client setting and found that it had been automatically disabled by Win10. There's an option there for this that I overlooked and did not deselect... see the screen snip. So, if you enable the SMB 1.0 Client on Win10, make sure you only select that one feature. upload_2020-2-25_21-52-17.png
