    Cannot make this work between 2 PCs - makes no difference whether WIFI or Ethernet connected. Both running build 16299

    I do have Private Internet Access on both machines, but have tried with it off. DELL can see LENOVO in File Explorer, but cannot access LENOVO - the dreaded error 0x80070035.

    LENOVO does not show DELL at all. I don't want to use a Workgroup, just have a simple means of transferring large files, otherwise pendrive. Since Windows 10 I have often had problems, with sharing working one way sometimes, but I can usually live with that

    All obvious things have been done, like allow sharing, switch off passwords. IP4 and 6 are allowed. There are dozens of Google searches for 0x80070035. Any suggestions please.If any members have had similar problems with a VPN please answer,
    I use TalkTalk as my ISP. They blocked Teamviewer a few months ago, had to get permission to run it. Could this be something similar?

    Sometimes vpn software network driver may interfere with local network sharing.Try uninstalling any vpn software & then try.Just turning vpn off is not enough,the entire setup & its driver need to be uninstalled & system restarted to complete the procedure.

    Same result with PIA uninstalled. Tried most of the solutions on the web without success. Back to the pendrive I think.
    Thanks

    I read some latest update removes anonymous access to shared folders in win 10.Try accessing shared folders with admin accounts with password on each pc while running with same local admin accounts on these pc.

    Thanks for suggestion, but made no difference. Windows troubleshooter says it is network access problem. I did try yesterday with PIA uninstalled and Windows Firewall disabled, without success. Looking at firewall settings today I saw that not all Incoming rules for file and printer sharing were enabled.I enabled the lot, but made no difference. When I try Homegroup I can create a Homegroup on both computers, but do not get join option on either. I think solving this problem is beyond me, and just go back to the pendrive method for transfers between computers. I seem to remember there was no problem on Windows 7 or 8.1, but I have had intermittent success on 10 in the past. Probably is PIA, or something else I have done. Perhaps I ought to start with 2 newly installed computers, but I am reluctant to wipe them yet again. Only reinstalled a few weeks ago. Both are working well, and no problems at all accessing two printers from either computer. As I have said many times in the past I am not an expert, but wish the Windows Troubleshooter could be a bit more useful, unless I have made a complete mess of something.

    don't know why file sharing is so much hassle on almost all major operating system even now, i have experienced stress free wireless sharing only on linuxmint.

    Nice to hear I am not the only one who has problems. Can do most easy things, but was begiining to doubt myself!

    If you don't want to use workgroup, you could use a ftp software to transfer files.

    Normally if I get such problem on Customers/Friend Computers I use the following way (Username and Password of the Destination Computer is needed):
    1. open Windows File Manager
    2. click on Network
    3. click on Network in Address bar
    4. in the Address bar use 2 \\ (Backslash) following by the IP of the Destination Computer like: 192.1638.1.112 or whatever that is
    5. a Windows come up asking for Username and Password of that Computer
    6. it should result in showing all Shared Drives and Public Folder
    7. click on such drive should open it and show content
    8. depend on Settings and its Permissions of the sharing user are able to read, copy, write, delete to that drive.
