Sharing Vista folders with Windows 7

5 computers on a peer-to-peer network, a Vista computer has shared folders. Everyone has access to one shared folder, no problems on any of the other 4 computer - three Windows 7 and one Vista. Another folder is not open to everyone, it has 3 people with full permission (co-owners) - UserA (Windows 7), UserB (Vista), UserC (Windows 7). UserA and UserB have no problems, UserC cannot get into the shared folder (no permissions). I've set UserC up the exact same way - they are an administrator on the computer that has the shared folder, all the users have the same password. I've checked and double-checked everything I can think of, compared against to other Windows 7 user and computer. The only thing different about this setup is that when I originally setup the user I entered the user name as L accidentally, then went in and renamed the user to Laura. The profile is c:\users\L but I log into the computer as Laura. I did try adding "L" as a user, that didn't work either. I'm stumped.

Hi,

Try this one:

1. - delete this user Laura on the windows 7 machine. and just create this user again and it will work..

OR

2. - or do one thing goto control panel of the machine with issue and open Credential manager --> and goto Add a Windows credential --> add network address, username and password. and click OK.

Regards,
Navneet

This morning the user was able to access the folder, we couldn't last night, no changes were made so I'm assuming it just took a while to propogate the share permissions. I'm awarding the points because I think either of those solutions would've worked and that's what I would've done next.
