In our household the desktop has a big hard drive, 2 partitions 1 for windows, and 1 for documents, photos etc (data) with crashplan backup.

The various laptops sync (sugarsync) into the data drive so you can work away from home and sync up automatically when you get back, all works reasonably well

So the big data drive has folders called (Me, Herself, Photos and so on).  These folders are all shared by the old fashioned

rightclick-properties-sharing-Share 

also Advanced Sharing-Share_This_folder YES   Sharename-SomethingHelpful  Permissions-everyone full control R and W

 

This all works well enough

 

The time has come to add our daughter, so I made a new folder, and set up the sharing just the same.  BUT it doesnt work, the laptops say Windows Cannot Access sharename.  You do not have permission to access \\desktop\sharename. 

 

Can someone tell me what I'm missing please

 

Thanks

Have you set the folder for her on the desktop to 'Sharing' ?

 

Windows Explorer - Data drive - Daughter's folder. Right click on it, 'Properties' - 'Sharing' - 'Share this folder'. If that doesn't work, click 'Security' in the 'Properties' box and see if she is entitled to operate it. That should solve the problem, if it doesn't, I'll try to scratch my head a bit more.
