Then I will introduce how to fix the “system error 53 has occurred” error.
How to Fix the “System Error 53 Has Occurred” Error
Method 1: Use the Correct Share Command
In most cases, an incorrect share command can cause the “system error 53 has occurred” error. The correct method of sharing is as follows:
Step 1: Press the Windows + R keys together to open the Run dialogue box.
Step 2: Type cmd and click OK to open Command Prompt.
Step 3: Type the following share command: net use F: \\server\share name.
Then you can check to see if the “system error 53 has occurred” error still exists after you use this format. If it still exists, you can try the next method.
Method 2: Run Ping Test
The correct way to identify if the network server is working properly is to ping the server and check if there is a response. Here are the steps:
Step 1: Open Command Prompt again and type the following command to ping the server/computer in question:
ping (IP address of the server)
Step 2: If the Ping command returns all packets and no packets are lost, it means your network is set up correctly. However, if an error occurs or you do not receive a response when pinging the server, the connection settings are incorrect.
Step 3: Troubleshoot according to the results of the ping test.
Then you can check if the “system error 53 has occurred” has been fixed. If not, you can try the next method.
Method 3: Disable Security Software
