It may be that, when you boot Linux, you have left Windows in a sleep/hibernate state rather than shut it down.  (Windows 10 is notoriously resistant to being shut down properly.)  Windows may be keeping part of the filesystem cached in memory (i.e., the page file) and does not expect some other operating system to have modified the disk. Try to figure out ...

Wierdly enough bitorrent might work pretty well here, assuming office policies allow it- it breaks up the file for you, checks if its correct and if not redownloads it. You're probably going to want to run your own tracker, but many bitorrent clients do that anyway, and if possible use webseeds to speed things up even more - burnbit makes this easy. As an ...

I've seen all of these..file sharing related UDP-137, UDP-138, TCP-139,TCP-445 And possibly TCP port 135, though that may be something to do with something called "RPC".

AT LAAST!! After 4 month, and seeing the error for the second time, I found the solution here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4046019 Turns out, if you type the ip in "Run", and only in "Run", a very specific error shows up that contains this message: "your organization's security policies blocks access..." Searching that lead me to this ...

Take a look at robocopy, it supports restarting, and in general is a lot more stable than other options.

Is the origin of a file traceable? If it is how can I sanitise it? The short answer is it depends: If the file contained your name, address, telephone number, and social security number it would not be very difficult to trace it back to you ... A lot of applications leave identifying information of some kind - known as Metadata - in files in addition to ...

I figured out how to do this from another post. Add the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters Name: SMBDeviceEnabled Type: DWORD (REG_DWORD) Data: 0 This will completely disable SMB services and shutdown the server that listens on 445. Restart computer to take effect. You can verify that it is off ...

When you posted this question 6 months ago, in my efforts to reproduce your problem I disabled then later re-enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP in the Advanced TCP/IP Settings of my network adapter. A few weeks later I discovered I was having the same problem described in the OP (except, I did it to myself). I ended up fixing the problem after hours of research ...

There is a known phenomena that shares the entire users folder, related to public folder sharing. see a description here: http://scottiestech.info/2009/09/25/windows-7-file-sharing-fixing-the-entire-user-directory-shared-problem/ Please note however, that share permissions stack on top of disk permissions, so if your user profile does not allow Everyone ...

This cable connects two USB3.0 hosts together. They provide chinish app for that but in Linux, you can use my patch to use it as virtual ethernet card. I managed to achieve speeds between 1-2Gbps. But you can write own driver to transfer any data: you simply write to USB EP0 and read from USB EP0 on the other side.

Just now found the answer - simply replace "www" with "dl" in a link. Pity that I couldn't find the answewr at Dropbox's site, though it turned out to be there!

Actually, µTorrent can indeed be instructed to prefer parts at the beginning and end of a file. It has a specific option just for that purpose, and has had this for quite a few versions. To inform µTorrent to do so, open up the Options menu on the main µTorrent window and select Preferences. There's a shortcut key for this step; simply press Ctrl+P instead, ...

I ran into this same problem just now and the help button on the share dialog actually (lo and behold) gave useful information: Go to Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Center -> Advanced sharing settings and change Password protected sharing to off. See picture below:

Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) added several command line tools, including sharing. To share a folder: sharing -a ~/Documents/Public Its man page and this article on the Apple.StackExchange blog explain how to use it in more detail.

Host-to-Host Connections USB 3.0 Type-A Connector Detail Unlike USB 2.0, the new standard will allow for two host devices to be connected directly with a USB 3.0 crossover cable. This new cable features the typical Type-A connectors on each end but with a new internal wiring. This cable omits the Vbus, D+ and D- wires (USB2.0 data and voltage) and cross-...

It seems like this is a bug in Apple's SMB implementation since Lion (so for Lion and Mountain Lion, but not for Snow Leopard). So there is no easy way around it. I've been having the same problem myself and it appears other people have been too: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1186688 The workarounds that I see are (I haven't tried these ...

It depends on how your home network is set up. If you have a normal public IP address and no firewall then yes, it is certainly possible. If you have a firewall setup to block traffic (and the default on any firewall should be to block everything except that which you specifically allow) then it should not be possible. If you do not get a public IP for ...

Command line method Assuming the current user is a member of the Administrators group, open a command prompt and enter: reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters /V SmbDeviceEnabled /T REG_DWORD /F /D 0 (this adds the required registry setting to disable SMB, and is the CLI equivalent of the OP's answer) Then enter: sc stop ...

To automate the Twisty Impersonator solution I have developed a command line program named ShareFix. Sorry if this looks like an ad but it works.

Method 1 One way I've dealt with this issue on a critical Windows Server system in one environment I maintain was with a batch script that uses Set-NetConnectionProfile and netsh, and explicitly set each trusted NIC/adapter on the machine to private at system startup with Task Scheduler using Run whether user is logged on or not and Run with highest ...

Linux limits are defined in the smb.conf file: Example: max connections = 10 Mac OS X has a limit of 10 (unless you have the server version): In Mac OS X version 10.0 or later, Personal File Sharing is designed to serve a maximum of 10 users. If you need to connect more users at once, you should upgrade to Unlimited-Client version of Mac OS X ...

Here is the official word from Microsoft TechNet, The C:\Users folder is shared when any sub folders from C:\Users\<username>\ is shared. The article is stale and mostly unhelpful, but worth knowing to complete the story.

There is more than one way to do this. Other answers that suggest alternatives aren't wrong; they're just different. I'm going to explain one particular possibility: sshfs. You can use SSHFS, which is a Filesystem in Userspace that maps a directory to a local path over SSH. This should work on almost any modern GNU/Linux operating system with a Linux kernel ...

This is done with two Local Security Policy (gpedit.msc) changes on the server.

You could use a password protected ZIP file and send that over Dropbox. I don't know if that is secure enough for your needs, but is simple. I think your proposed sneakernet option might be the easiest. Send a DVD in the mail.

In addition to Frank's answer, if you need to remove the share, go to Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab. Scroll down to the bottom and uncheck "Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)". Then remove the share on Users folder.

If you are willing to live with only knowing which share was connected and but not which specific file in the share is being accessed the MMC snap-in does show the computer information if you go to the Sessions view. You also can get the info from WMI via the following powershell query (you must be running powershell as an administrator for it to work) Get-...

Both computers are connected through wireless network and both access the internet normally. Assuming your networking is setup properly, and that they are in fact on the same subnet, etc., then my first guess would be that you have wireless isolation turned on in your router. Wireless Isolation is what it sounds like -- it's an option to isolate wireless ...

Ahh...this is where it is important for a server guy to understand what's under the hood. Since this is two years old I figure he's solved it already. However for posterity or anyone with a similar issue what he probably ran into is this (TCP window size * 8bits / RTT in milliseconds) = Max TCP throughput in bps While you might have a Gigabit network a ...
