In the past, I have tried full read/write sharing between a windows 8 computer, windows 7 computer, and a windows XP computer.  Had limited success.  Often while 8 & 7 could read from/write to XP, XP often could "see" HD partitions on 8 & 7, however, quite often, XP did not read from/write to either 8 or 7.  Finally gave up.  Now, all my computers run Windows 7 Pro, and if there is any temporary hiccup, I simply reStart all three one at a time.
