    Hey guys, finally I noticed how to make it work!

    If you have the drivers installed, please try this:

    1- Right click on start menu: Apps & features.
    2- In the right-up side of the windows click "Programs and features"
    3- In the next windows, left side, click "Turn windows features on or off"
    4- Enable SMB 1.0/CIFS file sharing Support.
    5- Click ok and restart.

    When you connect your BB10 phone it shoudl work like a charm! let me know guys!

    Edit: It fixes too the sharing files through wifi.

    Yes. I found out about the SMB 1 protocol a few months ago.

    However, in another thread, Thurask posted a link to an article that tells us why the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update from 2017 disabled the protocol.

    Turns out, SMB 1 is a pretty big security hole. Ransomware like WannaCrypt tends to use that vulnerability to do its thing. "Man in the Middle" attacks also use SMB 1.

    Amazing that BlackBerry ever even used this protocol at all since it's from the '80s and much newer and more secure SMB protocols have since been developed - even at the time of the development of Link.

    It would therefore seem to be a good idea to immediately close that hole after using Link - stating the obvious.

    Yes it's old and insecure, as possibly was always blackberry.
    Anyway when looked for a way to make it work I hadn't found a post about it and so I posted.
    For the other hand, Windows 10 is the only OS that enabled it, my updated windows 8.1 pc never uninstalled the old characteristic. Obviously there must be the typical cautions of always to avoid viruses, I didn't have any of those and I had outdated windows 7 and 8.1 back in the time

    Or to keep the last paragraph in mind every time one plugs in their phone.
