I have read other suggestions posted on these forums and for me nothing so far has worked.

My problem: My PC (Windows XP) can see and access items within the "Public Folder" on my Laptop (Vista) but can
not access other files and folders on the "C" Drive. My goal is to have my entire "C" Drive files and folders on my laptop available from my desktop. I get the "Access Denied" warning when I try to access folders other than the "Public" folder.

When I reverse the situation (access all folders on my PC from the Laptop) there is no problem. The Public folder and everything else is available.

I Checked all sharing settings, Network names the same, firewalls turned off, etc.

I am using Linksys 150. Desktop direct wire to Router. Laptop is Wireless.

Thanks for suggestions.

Are you "sharing" your c drive? (right click > share...) Also is file sharing on your laptop?

I have both PC and Laptop set to share all files and folders. The C Drive on the Laptop shows up on my Windows Explorer Network folder of the PC but when I click the C Drive, I get the permission denied warning. Only the "Public Folder", is accessible on the Laptop.
