The new Network Storage component to Samsung My Files is fantastic. I can access my NAS files quickly and without any issue. The problem is I can only connect to my SMB port 445 Windows 10 pc using a local user account. I have a domain-joined pc. I do not use the local account for anything other than troubleshooting. No other 3rd party file manager (CX File manager, FX File manager, etc.) have an issue using domain credentials to login. Please address this as the app is fantastic and not relying on third party software that bloats the phone further is a plus.

I found solution (for me): In Windows 10 File Explorer go to folder C: This PC: Users and below "Name" find your abbreviated user name. It should be entered in the phone.

I don't have local ID for Windows. My Microsoft account name is my email address.

Hi, sfsutherland-usa about Network File Manager for storage network connections.

Strongly suggest SAMSUNG revise the network storage connection options to permit entering the following NEEDED connection info:

1. SMB server address:

2. SMB server port:

3. SMB server user name:

4. SMB server domain or workgroup name:

5. SMB server protocol version: 1, 2, 3 (currently in use, #1 by default is disabled.)

6. SMB server password:

Yes, this will require a significant revision of your previous SAMBA-CIFS network storage module. Since Microsoft has now, by default, disabled SMB Protocol Version 1, and Samsung using fixed options for connection parameters, these Samsung defaults will not work for an increasing majority of Samsung users.

HEADS UP SAMSUNG...IMPLEMENT THE ABOVE CHANGES SO!!! SMB versions are CRITICAL for security integerity. DO NOT USE SMB#1...Prefer use #3 & higher for so many reasons.

2024 and still no action on this.

Samsung My Files will not work with Windows, domain-joined computers.
