There is a Powershell CMDlet you can try. If it isn't already included in your present version of Powershell, you should be able to update it to a newer version so you can use it. New-SmbMapping Here is an example from it's HELP file: PS C:>New-SmbMapping -LocalPath X: -RemotePath \Contoso-SO\VMFiles

Use The SFC Scan

SFC is used to fix corrupt system files. Missing system files can also be replaced automatically through this command.

  1. Press the Windows Key > type cmd to search for the Command Prompt.
  2. Right-click Command Prompt > Click Run as administrator
  3. In the Command Prompt window, type sfc /scannow > Press Enter to run the command.
    Windows 10 Start Menu - sfc scannow - 2 -- Windows Wally

Use The Device Manager To Fix The Problem

This is a network driver related problem, so we need to solve it from the network driver. Here’s how you’d do it:

  1. Press the Windows Key + X > click Device Manager
    0x800704cf - Windows Key + X - Device Manager -- Windows Wally
  2. Expand the Network Adapter category
    0x800704cf - Device manager - Expand - Network adapter -- Windows Wally
  3. Press Alt+V to open the View menu.
  4. Click Show hidden devices
    0x800704cf - Device manager - Show hidden devices -- Windows Wally
  5. Right-click and Uninstall each device under the Network category one-by-one. Some of them won’t get Uninstalled, don’t try to uninstall them.
    0x800704cf - Device manager - Show hidden devices - Uninstall -- Windows Wally
  6. After doing this, right-click the remaining devices in the Network category, and click Scan for hardware changes. Do this for all remaining devices.

This should uninstall corrupt drivers and install stable versions of them, ready for use.
