I am using the Homegroup feature of Windows 7 right now. I have four computers, configured with one account each, that are members of this Homegroup.
PC1, PC2, PC3, PC4
PC1 configured the Homegroup and has the only shared library that is visible on the Homegroup. PC2, PC3, and PC4 all save documents to the shared Homegroup library on PC1.
PC1 is basically acting as a file server.
I want to set it up so that only certain accounts on each of the other three (PC2, PC3, PC4) computers can see certain folders in the shared Homegroup library.
For instance, I have three folders in the shared Homegroup library located on PC1.
Folder2, Folder3, Folder4
How do I individually share those folders with only certain computers?
I have tried sharing with only "specific people" but it tells "windows was unable to find (name)". I have tried typing in the name of the computer to share with as well as account names.
I have run the Homegroup troubleshooter on all computers and I still cannot share specific folders with specific computers.
What would be the best way to share how I desire? Is there a better way than with the Homegroup or am I just doing something wrong?
