Lost network drives

I have two windows 7 64 bit desktops.  One is rarely used (emergency backup).  Everything work correctly on the backup system.  Yesterday on the main system I lost my network (NAS) drives.

Status       Local     Remote                    Network

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unavailable  Q:        \\Wdtvliveplus\usb1       Microsoft Windows Network
Unavailable  R:        \\WDTVLIVEPLUS\usb2       Microsoft Windows Network
Unavailable  V:        \\LS-WXL98F\share         Microsoft Windows Network
Unavailable  W:        \\LS-WXL98F\usbdisk1      Microsoft Windows Network
The command completed successfully.

Double clicking on Network shows the devices only as media servers, not wsd.

Both devices ping ok.

It appears that all services required are running.  Network adapter settings (Including Advanced) look the same as on the working system.

C:\Windows\system32>nbtstat -c

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [192.168.1.98] Scope Id: []

                  NetBIOS Remote Cache Name Table

        Name              Type       Host Address    Life [sec]

    WDTVLIVEPLUS   <00>  UNIQUE          192.168.1.34        520
    LS-WXL98F      <00>  UNIQUE          192.168.1.93        520

    It may be due to SMB1. When my Windows 10 PC updated to Windows 10, version 1709, I lost access to my Iomega USB hard drive, connected to my Linksys router. I had to re-enable SMB1, within Windows.

    Per this website, the WD Live TV still uses SMB1:

    Here is a link for enabling SMB1, in Windows 7, via the registry:
    Go to the "How to detect status, enable, and disable SMB protocols on the SMB Client" section/heading, and look for "Enable".

    Please note, enabling SMB1 is unsafe and a vulnerability. As I understand the risks, and do not open any outside ports for file sharing, I enabled it.
