I had a home network set up between my pc which had xp and my daughters laptop which had vista so she could access all the files on both external drives.
I upgraded my pc to vista and now cant seem to connect to the external drives from her laptop.
She can access the internet but that is all.
I've spent ages at this already and cant figure out where I'm going wrong
any help at all is much appreciated.
Thank you
