Connecting File Share preview to my windows 7 laptop

    Question

  • Hi

    I've created a file share (preview) and have already played around with it by mounting on a linux VM.

    I wanted to experiment connecting it as a network drive on my windows laptop.

    I tried via the connect network drive flow, providing the hostname, username and password of the fileshare itself

    For example (username for illustration of course),

    \\xyz.file.core.windows.net\shared-data

    username = xyz

    password = JuYR80eI.....real long hash.....

    But I just get errors

    Error code: 0x80004005
    Unspecified error
