Let's say Computer#1 has a USB harddrive connected (it can be F:, G:, E: whatever Windows assigns, I do not want to assign a fixed letter for various reasons).

The external drive and several other folders are allowed to be shared on the local network.

What is needed in Computer#2 (or #1) so that files on that USB harddrive can be read and modified from Computer#2. The drive is visible in Windows Explorer, but the message talks about missing permissions, consequently, can't read and can't write while the standard file sharing works just fine between the two computers.

Is what I want even possible?

I recall, from long ago, that at work it was possible for pass-through commands to go to some printer attached to another computer, so how different is that process? Not that I remember how it was done :thumbsup:
