        System error 53 has occurred.

        The network path was not found.

        Problems with keeping Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices attached after upgrading to Windows 10 2004. After much research and trying different solutions, the following is the solution that solved the problem.

        1. Run PowerShell as Administrator
        Enter the PowerShell command: Get-SmbConnection
        Note any NAS devices using SMB Dialect 1.*

        2. Run RegEdit
        Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network
        For each mapped drive letter that is for a NAS device using SMB Dialect 1.* update an existing value or add a new registry DWORD (32-bit) value:

        ProviderFlags  with a value 1

        3. Restart the PC


        After updating to Windows 10 v2004, cannot map network drives – Microsoft Community
