Question Windows Cannot set up homegroup problem on PC - Need a fix

Hello,

From past few days I am struggling to connect a PC to my Homegroup of another PC.

It gives me this error -



What I was doing?
I need to transfer large sum of data (100's of GB) from my Windows 10 laptop to Windows 7 running computer. I set up homegroup on Windows 10 laptop. But later when I join that homegroup on PC, it never connects, throwing "Windows cannot setup a homegroup on this computer".

I tried restarting my PC, still doesn't work. Please help me fix this or suggest how can I transfer 500 GB from one PC to another.
Thanks!

Why don't you share the source and destination folders on your local network without worrying about homegroup?

without Joining Homegroup
how can we share a folder between two systems
1) 1st system created Home Group
2) 2nd system will be Joined on that group by entering password.

after joining eachother share files between those two systems.

i always use Homegroup method because it transfers more than 11MB/s

if small amount of files (size) we can easily share with shareit but here he wants more than 100GB data this is not possible with shareit (means some packets drop will be there with shareit).

@admitcard
Thanks to HTMLBasicTutor, I came to know of a new way of sharing file. Yes, it's possible with HomeGroup, connect PCs on a local network.

@HTMLBasicTutor
Thanks for the reference, I am trying to connect two PC's one runs Windows 7 and other Windows 10 Laptop. On Windows 7 PC, Whenever I turn File and Printer Sharing, the option gets toggled automatically and never gets connected. I tried few times but it auto turns OFF.
It might need to call an expert for this.

You are welcome nick_westlife.

I have Win7 and XP machines that share/transfer info across our network. Sometimes they have problems "seeing" each other but a boot or refresh usually fixes that.

Maybe a Restart to the PC is what I was missing.
