I've installed a new hard-drive on a Win7 PC, now cant access their partitions over the network from other WIn7 PCs - Getting: "You do not have permissions" - but I can access the older drives ok which have inherited their permisions from when I used Win XP to format and share them.
I'm using a workgroup, not a homegroup (I have 2 winXP PCs on the network, one of which is my wife's corporate laptop which needs acess to printer and files). All PCs are on same workgroup. Network discovery is on. 128bit encryption (tried 56bit too on both PCs). No passwords required.
I've shared the new partitions the same as old ones as far as I can tell.
I've tried giving FULL CONTROL with inherited permissions to child folders, for all users.
I've tried adding a specific username for the user on the remote PC, but it only allows me to specify local users not remote ones (in the LOCATION field I only see the local PC).
What am I doing wrong? :(
Funny how just posing the question can make you think differently, and I compared the permissions of the drives I could access to the ones I couldn';t, and cracked it.
I just added the missing "Everyone" to the permissions user list.
