Mapping a Network Drive


C

charliech

I have a Desktop with WinXP SP3 (all the latest updates), and a laptop
with Win 7. I have my desktop harddrive divided in 3 partitions and
normally share my "E" drive with my laptop. Prior to Win7, I had
Vista on the laptop and the sharing worked fine. I have a Linksys
4-Port Router so I can share the drive and also the Internet with the
laptop. The Internet works fine with the setup after installing Win7,
but the file sharing does not seem to work now.

It kept telling that it "could not connect to some drives - my E
drive" - I removed the mapping on the laptop and attempted to re-map
it. On the laptop, in the Network area of Control Panel, it shows the
E drive, but when I try to map it, I get the following error:

- The mapped Network drive could not be created because the following
error has occurred:

- Not enough server storage is available to process this command

What do I need to do to resolve this issue and get the drive mapped?

Thanks for any insights.

Check out this page. Looks like it could be a simple registry edit to
fix. http://winhlp.com/node/40

I went to the site and found the following:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
\SYSTEM
\CurrentControlSet
\Services
\LanmanServer
\Parameters
IRPStackSize DWORD 0x0000000f (15)

It said to change that to something above 15 (maybe 16-18), to solve
the problem. But on the laptop, running Win7, the IRPStackSize
parameter is not in there (using RegEdit to look).

Any thoughts on that?

As a follow-up to my message above, I checked on the desktop to see if
the IRPStackSize parameter was there and it was - desktop is running
WinXP and the parameter was set to "12" - should that be increased to
16-18?
