Windows 10 Defender Firewall issues accessing files on PC

This may have been caused by the latest Win 10 update, but now I cannot access the videos on my PC smb:\PCname\Directory unless I turn off Defender on private network. What to I have to add to inbound/outbound rules so I can turn that back on?
Thanks in advance.


From a quick google the rules that need to enabled are:

File and Printer Sharing (NB-Name-In), UDP 137.
File and Printer Sharing (NB-Session-In), TCP 139.
File and Printer Sharing (SMB-In), TCP 445.
File and Printer sharing (NB- Datagram-In), UDP 138.

Thanks Tom.
