A needed shared file was missing from my office network so I re-ran the office network setup in xp on the computer. I accidently selected to not share files/printers. I found that the shared folder on that computer was missing so I ran the setup again, selecting to share the files/printers. The file still doesn't show up on the network and now on the computer itself. Has if been deleted? Have I lost the files for good that were on there? How do I get it back?

Well you can make sure all the hidden files are being shown... other wise, I can suggest you go to start, then run, then cmd, and then type in
dir /s /p "exact file name"
or if you know where on the folder was located, you could always do a few other things... things vanishing on shared, usually wind up being seen in command prompt.

It said the file was not found. I then found a link to the shared folder on sharing tab of another file. I clicked on the link and it said:

c:\documents and settings\all users\documents in not accessible.
Access is denied.

When I go to the location and click on the folder I get the same message. Also, the folder is not hidden. Is there a way to allow access or is it not allowing because the folder is not there? I hope that's not the case.

It seems that "c:\documents and settings\all users\documents" is not a shared folder.

The default Shared Documents folder is located at: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents
