I just set up a simple workgroup on my central business computer so that I could create a shared folder (which is an external hard drive on the central computer).
The central computer is running XP. My computer is running Windows 7. Everything was workng beautifully for the first two weeks - the shared folder was shared between all computers (2 XP units and my Windows 7). However, one morning, I could no longer see the shared folder or any of the network computers from my Windows 7 unit.
How do I get my computer to find this network / "workgroup" again? I have already tried naming the groups the same thing and changing the encryption types (per another forum's suggestion), but nothing has worked.
I really appreciate any suggestions and guidance you may offer.
Thank you in advance!
