Drive Sharing Windows7 & Vista Home Network
« on: October 21, 2011, 04:32:59 PM »

Hi All,

Can anyone help with this query?

I seem to be able to share the whole Vista PC's C: drive & access it from my Windows 7 PC, but I can't share the whole Windows 7 PC's C: drive & access it from the Vista PC.

I can individually share subfolders of the Windows 7PC & access them from the Vista PC, but I would prefer to have access to the whole drive in one hit.

Any ideas?

This sounds like another one of those typical "Permissions" problems!

I don't know the exact answer but the best I can advice is that when you get 'access denied' that you go into the properties of the offending drive/s, then selecting permissions follow it through and select the appropriate category that you want want (either enable access or disable permission) sorry if that sounds a bit vague, but I'm sure you will understand what I mean.

Basically, you are being blocked by your OS and you need to give yourself permission to access the drive/s in question.
