I recently acquired a branded shared network storage device. Initially, it’s sharing functions with my digital recorders worked fine but now it would not. Worse is, that it can’t even establish connection to a portable computer.
I have a networking device and a switch. It will connect to this machine through the connecting devices that I mentioned but is still not a recognize connection.
I would like to ask if the size of the hard drive matter? My computer’s hard drive has a capacity of 2TB, could this be a factor that contributed to this problem?
Problem with the connection from shared network storage to portable computer
I do not think the problem is with the hard disk drive space on your computer because you have 1 terabyte which is a very large space. The issue may be as a result of a problem with the network settings that you are using on the computer. It may have not been configured properly and therefore it cannot be detected on the network.
You may also need to check the cables and ports used to connect the device to the network. In case they are faulty then the device cannot be detected on the network. You will need to troubleshoot for faulty Ethernet cables, and check the network ports for the device and that on the network are working properly.
