Hi all,

SOLVED

I have a small internet with 5 pcs all running windowsXP PRO, one of the computers on the network will not let me access its files via the network, I can print share from this computer no problem, I can see the folders I want to share, but cant open the folders or copy files from this computer to another it says I don't have Admin rights and to contact the administrator.. But thats me..

I can copy files to this computer from all others no problem but the other way nope..

So whats wrong here... im stumped the other pcs have the same setup as this one that wont share its files.. ive googled this and tried many things to get it to share and now im here looking for help..

Its proly something very simple that i cant see.. a service or something...


cheers


Johnny

Have you tried checking your security firewall? That often blocks incoming traffic.

A good way to test it would be to disable your firewall temporarily to see if you can then access the files. For the few seconds/minutes that it'll be down it won't be /too/ much of a security problem. If you can access your files then, re-enable the firewall and look at the settings to allow the other computers access.

Solved it...........

I had Acronis True Image installed on that pc and wondered what id done since file sharing had stopped working, all i had done was install Acronis True Image.. so I uninstalled and whaaaaa hey presto I have file sharing back... I must read the Acronis True Image documentation to see why this happened..

thanks

Johnny
