Accessing User Folders on Server

So I have a Windows Home Server v.1

I set it up nearly a year ago, and everything runs fine.
I have 3 different user accounts that are password protected.
On my PC, i have been running Windows 7 and using the server as my My Documents folder.
I recently installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on an old Hard Drive, and i can't seem to access any folder on the server that isn't already given public permission.
Whenever i try to access my User folder i get an access denied message, but no prompt to enter a password so i can use it.
Any help would be appreciated

  1. Setup user rights on the server for the account you are using on Windows 8.
  2. the server only seems to recognize the new OS as a guest, not a user

    The OS is not a user, the user account you log on to the OS is a user. Create a user account on it, add that user to the file rights on the server. You can't set rights on a folder based on the fact that it's Windows 8 or 7 or anything like that.

    Are the user accounts you use local on the server? Network accounts? On the computer? Try to map a drive using the "use other user" option, and authenticate as a user you already setup, that should work.
