    SAMBA Error: You can't Connect to the File share because its not secure

    SAMBA Error: You can't Connect to the File share because its not secure

    What is a Samba :
    SAMBA is standard windows interoperabilty suite of programs for Linux and Unix. Samba has provided secure, stable  and print services for all clients using the SMB/CIFS protocol. 
    You'll come across this issue while accessing the samba share from windows 10.  The error says "You can't Connect to the File share because its not secure. This requires the obsolete SMB1 Protocol."  

    To get rid of this error, we need enable the SMB1 feature in the windows machiene. Let see how.

    Go to Control panel: 
    Type Control panel in the search  box Near  the start menu, The control panel Option will Appear. 
    Choose  "programs and features" from Control Panel.

    Now Click on the "Turn Windows features on or off" in the Left hand side. Windows Features Pop up box will appear, Search and select SMB1.0 there and click on OK. 
    Once you click on OK the system will add the feature and Ask for you to reboot the machine. Please do so. Once the machine is back, please try to access the  share.
