I have a raspberry pi 4b running raspbian buster lite, connected to this I have a 1TB HDD, on Mojave I was able to connect to the network folder and access the files on it, however with the new Catalina update I get this when I try to access it (I can still see it) "The operation can’t be completed because the original item for “RASPBERRY FOLDER” can’t be found." Is there any way to fix this or connect to the folder/files a different way?

  • Hi and welcome! could you clarify a bit on when I try to access it ? How do you do so? Command line, GUI? – ankii Oct 20 at 13:37

Turn off packet signing for SMB 2 and SMB 3 connections as described in https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT205926:

  • Edit /etc/nsmb.conf (create it if necessary)
  • Add

  • Save file
  • Reconnect SMB shares (or reboot your Mac)

I had the same problem and solved it in a strange way, As we are all aware Mac user has actually 2 names: one is the username (the profile name if i may) and the Display name.

Prior to Catalina , when authenticating with an SMB share from a Windows computer , I was using the display name (although it is a full name with a space) and everything was cool.

In Catalina , I found out I can only use the username, windows cannot authenticate with the display name.

of course , before I got to this point I have checked/enabled SMBv2, created the NetBios file in the MAC and all the other hints I could find, which obviously did not do the trick for me.

hope this helps
