Shared folders won't stay shared.
Posted on 2005-05-05
I have two computers with Windows XP on them. I had several folders and drives shared on the server computer.
Recently, all the shares after the first two listed .....just vanished. I can still access the files in the first two shares. At first I assumed that when I had added another hard drive, that had caused the other shares to get messed up somehow. So, I added them back in, and could access the files again from the other computer.. No problem, right?
Well, after about a minute, the new shares I added .....just vanished. No warnings, no popups, no messages, no anything.
I added them again, and they vanshed again after 48 seconds. Now, that's just weird.
I have a nagging feeling that this is something really simple that I'm overlooking, and I'm prepared to look like a fool when the obvious solution is pointed out to me. Feel free to mock me.
