Workstations unable to access shared folders on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Posted on 2010-08-18
I have 3 desktops in my house.
All are on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
They are all on the same Workgroup.
I want to be able to share various Volumes between the desktops.
This all worked for me a few days ago, but now I get the message "you do not have permission to access \\Potoroo7\VolumeShareName." when I try to access files on Potoroo7 from either of the other desktops.
Public folder sharing does work though.
File sharing works in the opposite direction, i.e. I can access shared files on other desktops from Potoroo7.
I have checked the following on Potoroo7:
network discovery is ON
file and printer sharing is ON
sharing in the Public folder sharing section is ON
password protected sharing is OFF
I have set up the Shares on Potoroo7 using Properties | Sharing | Advanced Sharing | Permissions:
Group or User Names: Everyone:
[Full Control: Allow],
I do not run a third-party Firewall.
I use AVG Free Edition, but I do not believe it has a Firewall component.
