So, i've searched and searched, and still can't get this right. My boss simply wants a Secured folder on a separate machine for back up purposes with only a few Users permitted. We only have about 12 users overall and 3 need permission. My issue is that I join the workgroup, I can see the Machine on the network, and the machine can see others on the Network. I've turned off simple file sharing on the machine and shared the folder i want to. But when i go to add users for the permissions, none of them show. Then i notice that the locations it's searching in when adding users is only the local machine. I try to change from local, but the only option is the local machine. Therefore, the only users i can add are the ones on the local machine. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!
