Due to serious security vulnerabilities SMB v1.0 has been disabled in Windows 10 Proffesional.
This protocol seems to be in use in Huawei HG633 routers to share files from hard drive connected to USB port.
With SMB v1.0 turned off in WIndow 10 I am not able to map my hard drive as network drive.
Is it possible to upgrade firmware in those routers so users can use patched up version of SMB protocol?
No is the simple answer. You could still map a drive between two or more PCs or use a NAS.

I recently changed from an 18 month old Acer laptop with Windows 10 Home that COULD see the drive connected to the USB port on a HG633 to a Lenovo laptop running the latest version of Windows 10 Home that, despite enabling Samba 1.0 in Windows Components will NOT see the drive at all.
The drive is still visible and accessible to my last-resort XP computers and I can read/write files from these computers without issue.
Over the last 2 weeks I have tried just about every "suggestion" I have found on the net, with no success.
It all points to a Windows 10 issue, the only place I haven't and won't go is the Registry, too advanced for me.
