Recently noticed my iphone cannot access shared folders on my home network and put it off as one of those bizarre intermittent issues that go away by themselves...except it didn't. 


After eliminating my iphone as the issue, checked the SMB settings in the windows features settings .....and  SMB1.0 has been disabled, presumably by recent windows patches. 


What the heck MS???? Nothing on google , is this just me?

SMB1 was disabled by default with the 1803 update, have you recently updated to 1803 /1809 from an older build?

Given smb1 is vulnerable it's no surprise that they're disabling it

I don't want to use it but so many ios apps are still not supporting more secure versions. . 


Smb1.0 it is not exposed to the internet, and the my other security measures are strong enough to ensure I don't execute some malware .   Given this , I believe it is reasonably safe to use smb1.

Yeah, it's been awhile now and a pain for some people that have HDDs plugged into routers for backups (like my in-laws). Every time they get an update, I  have to remote login and fix it. 


That and them changing private network media settings every damn time!
