Network drives become "not shared"


M

Metspitzer

I was watching a movie from a shared drive. I also log into the
computer with the shared drive using TeamViewer and had the computer
in view when it happened. I was watching the movie using VLC half way
through the movie VLC gave some error and the movie stopped.

I went to /control panel/administrative tools/Services\server
The startup type is set to automatic. The status was blank. I
changed it to started and everything works again.

This has happened several times before. Anyone know why?

Absolutely no idea at all. But I'm so impressed with your intuitive
grasp of how to solve a problem for which you have no understanding that
I'm going to ask for your personal help next time something goes wrong here.

Maybe the Metspitzer Method will work for marital problems and
contagious diseases too.

Sounds like the service crashed. Look in your event logs (most specifically
the system log for a service crash) to see if there is any indication there
are to why.

Here is a screenshot of what has happened since lunch.

The three warnings were:

In the Properties of the service you'll find a Recovery tab. Have a look
in there and choose "restart" for the time being.
The longer aim is to log the service events and find out just what
causes the service to fail. You might have some idea from your
experience of when it crashes. This services is logically tied to things
like the print spooler service. So the question is; printing? browsing?
what other thing?

Unfortunately the 2 SRV warnings don't say much. The DISK warning,
unless that refers to an optical drive, while not related to the topic
at hand, should be looked into.
For example, use the free version of HDTune, access the Health tab,
look at the SMART statistics, to see if a disk is in trouble.

\Device\Harddisk3

Now, if I look at my raw device labeling here, my two disks are
Harddisk0 and Harddisk1. So Harddisk3 would be the fourth disk.
And the order of disks in Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) is the
same as the ordering of the disks using that labeling scheme.
So the fourth disk down in Disk Management, would be equal to
Harddisk3.

Since the error is listed as a Paging operation, if you haven't
modified paging at all on your computer, then Harddisk3 could well
be the drive with C: on it.

And that's just to help you zero in on which disk to check
the SMART stats on.
