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
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
