Solved Cannot map some network drives Tags: Configuration Windows 7 Computers External Drive Last response: January 2, 2013 12:38 AM in Windows 7 Share newsmedia December 22, 2012 3:39:30 PM I have two networked computers using Windows 7 Ultimate. Both are part of WORKGROUP. Computer 1 has 3 internal drives, one of which is shared and can be accessed by Computer 2; and 1 external drive, also shared and also accessible by Computer 2. Computer 2 has three internal drives, two of which are shared. Permisions are set for Everyone to have full access to both drives. Yet computer 1 can only connect to one of the shared drives. When I try to Map the errant drive from Computer 1, I constantly get the stupid message that I don't have permission. Can you help with this ? I have tried everything I could find on this. Wishing you a happ festive season. Keith More about : map network drives Best solution Cyberat_88 December 23, 2012 3:35:25 PM Reset permissions on Comp. 2 for that drive. 'Everyone' by default does not grant full access. Compare permission settings to Drive 1 shared on that PC. Happy Festivus ! newsmedia December 23, 2012 7:01:49 PM Hi - thanks for the reply. I had edited the permissions to begin and set '#Everyone' to full access (r/w) - it makes no sense that I cannot connect to the drive.
