Access denied issue (but this is an easy one!)
Posted on 2004-03-25
OK. I know this is easy if I do some search for it, but I need to get it out of the way quickly so that I can continue my work:
I have a shared external USB HD drive connected to my desktop and, through it, to my notebook in a peer-to-peer setting that works flawlessly.
However, yesterday I deleted the partitions on the USB HD drive and created new ones. Then I set up one of those partitions to be shared on the network. (I'm going to have to create other partitions too that will need to be shared on the network.)
After the above operation, I do get the new partition on "my network places" (though I get its icon twice), but am denied access to it. The message says I don't have access authorzation and that the server memory's running low (that's a blatant lie! I've got tons of memory in both machines).
Any ideas what this could be and how to fix quickly?
