That is how XP's Simple File Sharing works. It restricts access to folders like c:\Windows or c:\Program Files when the root is sahred. You would need to use Adcanved Permission Sharing and setup username based permissions for the shares.

Another option is to use Simple File Sharing and simply make a new share of the locked folder.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
