Win10 Azure AD users and networkdrive


On a LAN, I am logged into my Win10 computer with my Microsoft account.
I use a pincode.
In the LAN I have shared folders on a win 2016 server and a NAS.

Those folders are not accessible from my computer while other computers with a local account are able to access those folders.
I've been told I need to put my server and NAS in a Azure Active Directory. That's not my preference.

Is there any way to solve this problems without switching my computer to a local account?

Your question is more related with azure AD account, I will remove windows tag and add the corresponding azure AD tag. Thank you!

Thank you for your post and I apologize for the delayed response!

  • When it comes to your network drive and NAS (I'm assuming this is networking attached storage?), is this all on-prem as of right now?

  • When you say you don't want to put this into Azure/ Azure Active Directory, is there a reason?

  • When you log into your Microsoft Account is this account a user in Azure? Or?

Any additional details would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any other questions, please let me know.
Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
