[PC]Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found

Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found

Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP:

  1. Go to “Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections”.
  2. Right-Click on the connection and choose Properties.
  3. Click “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Version 4” in the list.
  4. Click Properties, and then click Advanced.
  5. On the Advanced TCP/IP settings windows, go to “WINS” tab.
  6. Under NetBIOS setting, click “Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP”, and then click OK.


“So at least I determined this is most likely a helpful fact in resolving this. Going into “services.msc” I made sure that all the obvious services are started and running:
DCHP Client, Homegroup Listener, Homegroup Provider, Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper, NetTcp Port SHaring Service, Network Connections, Network List Service, Network Location Awareness, TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper”

For what it’s worth department. I tried ALL the above suggestions to no avail but in my case the following worked for my situation.

Go to Control Panel
Go to Credential Manager on each Windows 7 machine on the network
Under Windows Credentials, type in the name of each machine, username and password

It sounds too simple but it worked for me. The shared files and folders popped right up after this!

Method 1:
This could be an issue if the security software is interfering with the connection. You may temporarily try to disable the security software and check what happens. Also change the Windows Firewall settings and check if that is causing the issue.
