look at the attached image... and try and explain why that comes up ..
if i share the windows directory, that msg will come up for every folder under it.. i was wondering if i am able to have full access on the other computer...
I had a similar problem. The only way I could get it to work was to turn Simple File sharing back on (since I'd previously disabled it) and then go through their sharing wizard. The wizard said something about it having to enable sharing. I don't know exactly what it did, but once it was done, the folder was shared and I could acess it from other computers on my network. Of course once that was done, I turned off Simple File Sharing!
i always have simple file sharing on as i'm not familiar with the other one...
i only have 2 pc's on this network at the moment, running thru a 5port switch, used to jst use a cross-over cable and it did the same thing..
so i dunno.. i thought this was just normal security, but surely u can get full access..
bot machines use win xp .. and i have tcp/ip and ipx protocols installed... games and remote desktop run fine... bt would be nice to get full access.. and also in perfectdisk i get a similar error about insufficient access..
Try this, go to Explore and drop to the bottom of the tree and select "My Network". Now go to Entier Network and then MicorSoft Windows network. Select your network and expand it. Open all the folders so that the subs are shown.
I had the same problem and after using this method everything works O.K....
ok i turned of sfs and unshared everything.. reshared c: ...
windows still isn't accessable even if i share that specific directory
what am i doing wrong?
are there any other settings its dependant on..
o.. and when i go to add acces, i've got is selected on everyone for full access, i tried to add the other computer specifically but i cant change the location...
wow... thank oDin
i did the run thing.. it asked me for a username / pass .. i put it int he administrator. .. and it logged me on ...
now i guess as long as i'm logged until i need to do it again.. i got full access to everything
so i guess i got a solution now ... perfect disk now lets me do the stuff... so thanks
strange solution to a strange problem..
about the why i need access to the windows directory... it's not really that it's just that well i wanted to get into program files and stuff really.. but it was just windows directory was having the same prob.. and it's name was shorter
thanks guys... case closed... (i guess kinda)
but yea as well... i thought that you SHOULD be able to get full access..... o well... fine by me.. don't really need to all that much .. so cool
What exactly are the benefits of having Simple File Sharing off then? I have it on (and I can get to the security tab). I have 2 shared folders - one for programs etc, and another for music (saves my girlfriend from having to mirror all my music on her pc) - Nobody else is on the network that I dont care if they have access to the shares.
Would it be better to turn SFS off or do I gain no speed increase or better facilities and would be best to leave it on? (in the options where u turn it off, it says "(Recommended)" next to it)
With SFS off you can controll the access much better. Easier to deny access to people who are not allowed. But if you're just sharing across a small internal network you can leave it on since it's much easier that way.
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
