    Default Devices cannot see any files in mezzmo

    Hello All
    My problem is that Mezzmo is running however when my devices access mezzmo there are no files to be found. I have so far disabled all my firewalls, restarted the server and removed and re-added my files within mezzmo. Any ideas?

    If your files are stored on a NAS (or external computer), then the likely reason is due to access permissions where Mezzmo server (running as a Windows service on your computer under the Local System account) does not have access rights to your files. See this FAQ to fix the problem - http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...r-home-network.

    It's ok, I seemed to have solved the problem. You were correct the files did not have permission (even though they were residing on my internal hard drive) all I had to do was set the permissions of the files that I wanted Mezzmo to share, so that "everyone" could access them by giving permission to "everyone" in the sharing settings under the properties window of said folder. Thanks again.

    I am running Windows 10. How do I access the area and allow permission?

    You can right-click on the folder in Windows 10 and go to properties then select the Security tab to add permissions for user access.

    Make sure the "Allow" column is ticked for all the user names and that should ensure all is OK. Next, check if "Everyone" is listed as a group / user name. If not, add it and then make sure the "Allow" column is ticked.
