I'm unable to access storage drives on home P.C.'s

by opiej75 / June 17, 2008 4:23 AM PDT

I've setup a home network with 2 desktops and 1 wireless connection for my laptop. I can access the shared Documents and My Documents files on both desktops but I have a 500gb RAID 1 (mirrored) drive for large file storage and when I try to access it I get a message "Not enough server storage available". I also get the same message when I try to access the second desktops RAID 5 storage
This is a NON internet connected network. I only access the internet when I use my laptop at net cafes.
When I access my network with my laptop I get the same message for trying to access the large storage on both desktops
I have full Administrator access on all systems

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
