  • adding a new computer on the network

    Sorry I am very new here and hope this is ok, I am on a network in my work place it runs server 2012 and vm ware I believe. I can get all my win 7 computers to see the u (storage drive) and access it with passwords but I cant get the new win 8.1 computers to see it. do I have to add the computers somehow? sorry again...

    Re: adding a new computer on the network

    Is it a domain or a workgroup?
    If domain, are the new machines domain joined?
    If a workgroup, are they all in the same workgroup?
    What is the U drive on - a server or a NAS device?

      They are on a home group.. When I start a new windows 7 computer I click my computer and it shows the u drive (file storage) that everyone has access to at that point I just put in user name and pass and it then allows me to use that drive. Win 8.1 does not do that and I can't even see that drive in my computer.. I have access to vm ware by remote desktop but have no idea what I am doing

          This tells you how to join a Win8 PC to a Homegroup:

              Expand the section named 'Joining or creating a workgroup':

              Let us know how you get on.
