The Error 0x80070035 The network path was not found can happen for many different reasons, this guide will show you many general resolutions for this issue.
This issue affects all versions of microsoft windows. The error is caused by some sort of authentication issue, I have seen this error 0x80070035 The network path was not found the most on windows machines connecting to shares which are hosted on non Microsoft Operating systems such as Linux.
Resolution 1 – Change LAN Manager authentication level
When a microsoft machine tried to access a share it needs to authenticate before it can access the resource. When a Microsoft windows machine tries to access a share on a non windows machine (Linux for example) the authentication some time can fail because the remote machine can not under stand the format of the authentication sent.
In my experience this is the most likely cause of the Error Code 0x80070035 The network path was not found, so we need to change how the authentication request is sent, we will need to perform the following steps.
Click on your start menu type in secpol.msc then left click on the application that shows up
Then browse to the following location Local Policies > Security Options > Network security: LAN Manager authentication level and double click the setting “Network security: LAN Manager authentication level”
From the drop down box select “Send LM & NTLM-use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated” then click on apply then ok. Now restart your machine and try to access the share that you got the error on before.
