Windows 10 – Network Path Was Not Found 08×80070035 Possible Fix

Another Microsoft corporation problem. This time you may receive this Windows 10 – Network Path Was Not Found 08×80070035 error message when attempting to connect to a local area network connection share. This is more verbatim the actual network error.

Windows cannot access “the target machine name” Check the spelling of the name. Otherwise there might be a problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network problems, click diagnose.

When you click “Diagnose” you will see the following:

Error code: 0x80070035

The network path was not found.

If you attempt to connect to your target computer’s share via the Internet Protocol address instead, then you will be able to browse it successfully. For example you would try to access your network share by entering in the Internet Protocol address and share name like this example:

\\10.0.0.1\share

First you want to obviously make sure that you are trying to connect to the correct target machine and share name, like this example:

\\D620\USER

Also, you can try to ping your target computer via this command:

ping D620

If you did indeed enter in the correct machine name and share, then you will want to verify that two services are running on your Microsoft Windows computer. You will want to verify that the Computer Browser Service is enabled and running. You will want to enter the “Services” tool on your Microsoft Windows computer.

Also, you will want to verify and or turn on NETBIOS Network Basic Input Output System over TCP/IP Transmission Control Protocol Internet Protocol. You will want to perform this step on both of your computers. Your source and your target computer.

If the following troubleshooting tips did not fix your problem, you can reset the Microsoft Windows winsock. First, you want to document your computer’s Internet Protocol address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS Domain Name System settings. Type this command into a Microsoft Windows command prompt:

C:\>ipconfig /all

Now you can type in the resulting information or screen capture it. You will want to save this ipconfig /all command information in case you have to reconfigure your network settings because of a static ip address, etc. Now you will enter in the following two commands into a Microsoft Windows command prompt.

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ip reset c:tempresetlog.txt

You can go ahead and restart your computer. Hopefully, now you are able to browse local network computers and their shares. If your computer had a static Internet Protocol address configured, you will want to configure your static Internet Protocol address again.

The netsh winsock reset command actually resets your network settings to default, which is configured for DHCP Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. These instructions were written for a source computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system installed, trying to connect to a target computer with Microsoft Windows XP professional operating system. However, you can certainly use these instructions and tips for other Microsoft Windows operating systems ie. Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7, and Microsoft Windows 8.

pertaining to networking with Windows 10

0:00:05.609,0:00:09.840
I was trying to access a Windows XP

0:00:07.980,0:00:13.040
machine so I could share files back and

0:00:09.840,0:00:16.170
forth using file and printer sharing I

0:00:13.040,0:00:18.960
could not now I can but earlier I cannot

0:00:16.170,0:00:21.060
browse this d620 computer which is

0:00:41.850,0:00:45.719
quick steps first you want to make sure

0:00:43.680,0:00:50.610
that the computer browser or service is

0:01:15.200,0:01:26.340
close that then you want to make sure

0:01:19.549,0:01:29.780
that tcp/ip over NetBIOS is enabled

0:01:26.340,0:01:32.700
NetBIOS over tcp/ip on both machines

0:01:29.780,0:01:34.200
actually on both machines they were set

0:01:32.700,0:01:40.200
to this other default setting which I

0:01:34.200,0:01:42.450
will show you now this is Windows 10 we

0:01:40.200,0:01:45.119
can go back to control panel home go to

0:01:42.450,0:01:48.930
network and internet go to network and

0:01:45.119,0:01:50.420
sharing center then I am on your network

0:01:48.930,0:01:52.770
the one that you’re connected to

0:01:50.420,0:01:56.280
selected it could be Y file it could be

land just select it then go into the

0:01:56.280,0:02:07.150
properties then for

0:02:02.220,0:02:10.420
tcp/ip version for not six but four go

0:02:07.150,0:02:14.020
into the properties then go to advanced

0:02:10.420,0:02:16.330
then click on the lens tab this is the

0:02:14.020,0:02:19.690
setting that allowed me to then browse

0:02:16.330,0:02:23.980
my Windows XP machine from my Windows 10

0:02:19.690,0:02:25.600
machine I had sharing all set up I had

0:02:23.980,0:02:31.180
file and printer sharing in the expert

0:02:25.600,0:02:33.810
machine I had a folder shared before

0:02:31.180,0:02:36.640
every reason I could ping it by its

0:02:33.810,0:02:38.410
computer name and by IP address I

0:02:36.640,0:02:41.560
couldn’t map a network drive or I

0:02:38.410,0:02:46.569
couldn’t access it in the network tab of

0:02:41.560,0:02:48.730
Windows 10 you want to set this to the

0:02:46.569,0:02:51.700
second option enable NetBIOS over tcp/ip

0:02:48.730,0:02:55.799
it was set to the default setting which

0:02:51.700,0:02:58.630
will use NetBIOS firm your DHCP server

0:02:55.799,0:03:01.810
that could be your router or whatever

0:02:58.630,0:03:06.299
device that you use to give IP addresses

0:03:01.810,0:03:09.430
or you might not be using DHCP so I

0:03:06.299,0:03:12.190
changed it to the second one enabling

0:03:09.430,0:03:18.100
applies over tcp/ip click OK click OK

0:03:12.190,0:03:20.140
again click close click close now I can

0:03:18.100,0:03:22.510
click close here to now I want to show

0:03:20.140,0:03:24.760
you on my Windows XP machine it was set

0:03:22.510,0:03:30.780
to the same setting so you go into

0:03:24.760,0:03:30.780
control panel on Windows XP

0:03:32.930,0:03:41.430
go into network connections same thing

0:03:39.180,0:03:44.070
local connection or if it’s a Wi-Fi

0:03:41.430,0:03:47.690
connection right click it go to

0:03:44.070,0:03:55.230
properties go to the properties for

0:03:47.690,0:03:59.010
tcp/ip click advanced then go to the

0:03:55.230,0:04:00.540
same tab wins tab again even under

0:03:59.010,0:04:03.330
Windows XP machine they will set to

0:04:00.540,0:04:07.260
default which would use NetBIOS setting

0:04:03.330,0:04:09.690
from the DHCP server I changed it to the

0:04:07.260,0:04:12.660
second one just like on Windows 10 and

0:04:09.690,0:04:13.230
they will NetBIOS over tcp/ip I clicked

0:04:12.660,0:04:16.410
ok

0:04:13.230,0:04:19.380
I clicked ok again I click close that’s

0:04:16.410,0:04:21.540
going to hourglass close this window

0:04:19.380,0:04:23.760
I’ll just minimize my remote desktop

0:04:21.540,0:04:26.070
connection then almost immediately as I

0:04:23.760,0:04:28.430
did this is off screen but at the right

0:04:26.070,0:04:31.530
side of the micro show there’s a little

0:04:28.430,0:04:34.560
refresh network or you can use your f5

0:04:31.530,0:04:38.340
key I click that and then all of a

0:04:34.560,0:04:41.460
sudden the d620 which is my laptop

0:04:38.340,0:04:43.560
running Windows XP is showed up and now

0:04:41.460,0:04:45.090
it shows up in the network and I can

0:04:43.560,0:04:47.370
browse it like normal I don’t have to

0:04:45.090,0:04:51.630
necessarily map a network drive unless I

0:04:47.370,0:04:54.900
want to but I can browse it and look at

0:04:51.630,0:04:56.610
the files on there and also before it

0:04:54.900,0:04:58.620
wouldn’t show up I could still remote

0:04:56.610,0:05:00.750
desktop connection to it but it didn’t

0:04:58.620,0:05:03.560
show up so I could not map a network

0:05:00.750,0:05:07.380
drive and then obviously I couldn’t

0:05:03.560,0:05:09.479
browse it and then go to the shares that

0:05:07.380,0:05:11.720
I have set up and then access the file

0:05:09.479,0:05:14.460
so it was a big bummer

0:05:11.720,0:05:15.810
so hopefully this also resolves your

0:05:14.460,0:05:21.600
issue where you’re receiving the

0:05:15.810,0:05:23.640
specific error which is 0 X 8 0 0 7 0

0:05:21.600,0:05:26.850
through 5 the network path was not found

0:05:23.640,0:05:30.479
when you try to map a network drive I’m

0:05:26.850,0:05:32.840
going to 10ma might also be a problem

0:05:30.479,0:05:35.050
with Windows Vista

0:05:32.840,0:05:42.460
7:8 possibly possibly but this was

0:05:35.050,0:05:42.460
Windows 10 and Windows XP adios
