I want to access a shared folder on a network. I was able to share data through this folder two days ago. Now, when I double click the folder on workstation, I have error message

network path not found

With command prompt, and net view \\<IP_address for the shared folder>

I have this error

system error 53 has occurred

the network path was not found

I allowed this IP address in running windows firewall, no result.

How could i fix that, where can the problem come from?

  • Does the computer with shared folder obtain IP-address from DHCP-server? – Volodymyr Molodets Nov 19 '12 at 10:02

  • Do you have a router which assigns IP-addresses automatically? Most likely you shared a folder, then turned OFF your pc/laptop, turn it on, and IP was changed. – Volodymyr Molodets Nov 19 '12 at 10:08
