Cannot find local drive on remote computer when connecting through Remote Web Workspace

RWW works well in all respects except my laptop will not share its c: drive when connecting to a remote computer through RWW. All other computers seem to work except mine. I can see my printer and my cd-rom but not c: drive. I have checked all options I can think off in security and sharing for the c: drive, but I don't know what specific permissions have to be in place to share your drive through RWW. Any ideas?

What is the operating system of your laptop?  

I'm assuming that you are expanding the "optional settings" when connecting to the remote machine and selecting the "Enable files or folders to be transferred between the remote computer and this computer" option.

Then, make sure that Administrators, Users and SYSTEM have full control of the C: drive.

TechSoEasy - The laptop is XP Prof and I am the network admin. I have full permissions in all areas and this is my personal laptop (I have full admin rights.) I do check the optional settings. My Cd-Rom shows up on the remote computer as D: drive, my C: does not show up on the remote. I am baffled!

On your laptop is Simple File Sharing enabled?   If it is, it should be disabled.  I'd then create a new user account on your laptop and see if that works.  If it does, then I'd suspect that your current user account's profile is corrupt.

Simple file sharing is not enabled other than the C$ share which is on by default. I will try logging in as another user that has been setup. Thanks!!

Using an alternate user account did not help. I could only see the cd-rom, not the hard drive. Any other ideas?

Yep... reinstall the OS.  Less time than any additional troubleshooting.  Use Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to save what you need from it before reinstalling.

I always hate being right when the answer is so wrong.  (but I generally love being right otherwise).
