Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Problem creating/renaming Folders on Network drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • We updated ONE workstation to the W-10 AU, and it has not gone well.  If we go to a network drive, right click and create a new folder, then give it a name, it freezes for about 20+ seconds, then gives this error.

    If we cancel, the folder still shows as New Folder.  If we press F5 and refresh over and over again, it eventually shows the new name, despite the error and hitting cancel.  This is of course a DEAL breaker.  The server is Server 2012 Standard, and no other workstations have the issue (they are not running the Anniversary Update).

    This does not happen creating folders on the LOCAL drive.

    I went to Roll back last night, and was presented with the option to "Chat" with Microsoft.  I did, they said they would have to send me to another team, who wanted a few hundred dollars for a Pay per Incident, but I'll be darned if I am paying to troubleshoot their bug in this update.

    I have searched for an answer, and others are having the issue.

    PS, saw some references to DFS, but we are not running DFS.

    Since there is only a 10-day window to roll back, I will have to do that this weekend.  This of course doesn't give me a way to know if this is ever fixed.

  • I suggest you roll back. Windows 10 is buggish at best. Look at the sheer number of posts regarding Windows 10 Networking Problems. This is very different from Windows 7 where MS actually did test and troubleshoot every new version/hotfix, Service Pack before release into the public. With Windows 10, MS assumes we, the users, are supposed to do that.

    Are your other workstations Win10 as well or any better OS?
