I have 2 Win XP machines connected to a P2P network via Cat5 cables. One is a workstation that stays in my home office. The other is a laptop that I take with me.
I have several folders on the workstation that I have marked Shared so that I can access them on the laptop. I keep the master copy of key business filed on the desktop and a copy on the laptop.
I just noticed that a few of the subfolders are not getting synced. I use a program called Beyond Compare. When I checked those subfolders, I see that while the parent folder is shared, some of the subfolders are not. I am not sure how that happened, biut I suspect it was when I moved them from a non-shared folder.
Anyway, is there a way that I can mark the parent folder as shared and make all of the subfolders also shared. I would prefer not to have to go to each subfolder (there are several levels) and mark each one individually.
Is there a way to ensure that any new subfolders are automatically shared or at least that I am warned if they are not?
I wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the XP forum. Please move it if appropriate.
