Shared folders accessable in Safe mode but not Normal mode
Posted on 2006-11-03
I have two drives that were both working and sharing fine on our office network. I had to replace the D drive with a larger drive temporarily. When the original D drive was replaced I had lost access to shared folders on both C an D drives. The strange part is that when I log on in Safe mode all shared folders are accessable from the network--when I restart the pc the folders are no longer accessable.
I have gone through the control panel network sharing wizard and all the shared folders are set for sharing. They all appear as Shared on the network but the user only gets an permission failure message; sometime "network path does not exist" sometime "not enough server storage to process this command".
Any suggestions on correcting the permission problem.
A bit frustrating since this was all working fine until the 1 - 2 hr swap of D drive. Of course, the D drive is the most critical data repository that everyone must have access too. :-(
I am using XP home edition...
