Sorry, title is supposed to say " Was the entire contents of my C drive available for everyone on my network to see?" If a mod could fix that please
When I click My Network Places at the top of the list is the drive "acer (c ) Carla Arseneault (carla)". Carla arsenault is the name of my computer.Anyway, It contains all the files of the C drive, which is quite alarming. Its located above Shared Documents file, not in it, then the list goes on to list servers and so on that are on the network. It even has the little hardrive logo by it!
I dont understand why im seeing it there. Was it actually viewable by anyone on the network?
I tried goin into my computer, right clicking properties on the c drive, and then security tab where it warns me about the danger of sharing the root of the driver. I click it, and the box then states "share with other computers on network" or something along those lines is not checked...
Is it just listed there on my local computer, or for everyone to see!?! Perhaps this is there to make it easier to bring stuff to shared documents? Anybody else ever see their c drive on the My network places?
I dont use this computer anymore, so Im not worried about them seeing all the contents now, but am more interested in learning whether it was available to others at any poiint in time from what you can tell with this info (or any other info I havn't looked at)
thanks and all opinions would be appreciated
Added some pictures incase my descriptions weren't very good.
