XBMC 12.3 (Frodo) + Win 10: Broken SMB Shares
Ok Reporting back on my finding and a possible FIX for some.

I have fixed the issue with Linux not being able to access windows 10 USB shares ONLY.

So I been battling for few days with this, finally resorting to M$ tech chat support which didn't really help as he suggested everything I had already tried on my own prior to contacting and ended in him saying I need to reinstall which is just a big MEH to me.
follow this for fix: **NB**!!

Raise the IRPStackSize parameter for the server

The IRPStackSize parameter specifies the number of stack locations in I/O request packets (IRPs) that are used by Windows. You should increase this number for certain transports or for file system drivers.

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

Caution: Incorrectly editing the registry might severely damage your system. Before making changes to the registry, you should back up any valued data.

To increase IRPStackSize for the server:

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate and then click to select the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanmanserver\Parameters
On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.(32bit)
Type IRPStackSize, and then press Enter.
Right-click IRPStackSize, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type the desired value, and then click OK.

Although the chat did make me realise I hadn't correctly named the reg Dword 32bit key, it is case sensitive, so I had irpstacksize in lower case where as it needs to be in partly uppercase as such; IRPStackSize
I used the value of 29 hexadecimal

YOU NEED TO RESTART after adding and setting the dword.

fixing that and restarting randomly decided to try it later and it worked (didn't think it would make difference)

I am on windows10 build 10586.104

Hope this helps other
Cheers! Smile
