Example of my problems:

I changed sharing settings on the hard drive of computer 1 to allow sharing with computer 2.

I set up a Network Place for C (hard drive) from computer 1 ON computer 2.

I tried to save a file from computer 2 onto the C drive on computer 1.

It didn't work.

What could I be doing wrong?

I made another post with more details titled File Sharing on Small Networks or something like that.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Did you set up a home network...to begin with?

Did you set up the drives/partitions that you want to share with the other respective system?

If you would have click on your original post, you would have noticed that your question was moved to our networking forum Somebody there has also posted a suggestion
