i told xp to share my c drive for read only with my other pcs on my home lan. but it keeps blocking some folders from share (like "documents and settings" and "program files"). :huh: how do i tell xp to share the c drive with no folder restrictions (just read only restrictions)?
I would be careful doing this. If you are connected to the net (which I am assuming is a yes) and you have no firewall you might as well just send out an invite. I can't really understand why you would need such files/folders open. You are aware that with the administrator password you can browse to a UNC path of "\\YOURCOMPUTERNAME\c$" In XP and 2000 the HDs are shared as "administrative shares" They are hidden and accessable by anyone who has a local account on that PC. By adding a "$" at the end of any share you can also create a hidden share. To browse just open up a "RUN" box and type "\\COMPUTERNAME\sharename" Hope this helps.
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
