Okay first off, sorry if this isnt the right section, still new to this forum.
I recently purchased a few extra desktops and am wishing to share all the files from my main to the rest of them.
They are all connected through a 10/100 12 port switch, i know they are functioning because i have synergy running flawlessly across them all.
I have set up several share folders including two hard drives and mapped them as network drives. (view from PC 2)
They both have been working before but now i get this error when i try to open the Media drive i get this error when i try to help from (PC2):
When i view the folders through network i can see the hard drives and folders shared.
but if i try to open anything other then the one drive that works which is Back Up Drive i get this error
Any idea whats happening? All networks on both computers are set to private (not public private acts as work/home just had to do it a differnt way because something f**cked up somewere and windows wouldnt let me change it like that) Im not connected to any homegroup would that make any difference?
Here are the settings on PC1 - the computer with the hard drives.
Its just strange because i think i have set it up correctly, well i half know i have because one of the drives is doing what it should, the Back up drive is functioning correctly with no problems its just all the others.
Before this started to happen also i would be asked for user credentials but i was unsure why because i turned password sharing off but it continued to ask for it. I jsut assumed it was the username and login password for the user that was sharing?
Make sure all the systems are in the same workgroup name. Also set rights on the folders you are sharing for "Everyone" to have at least Read access if you are not going to be deleting, adding or changing files remotely.
