In Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Advanced - make sure you are on Home/Work (not Homegroup or Public) and make sure the settings in there reflect permission for network discovery, file and print sharing, password protected access, high encryption, etc.)  

Then in Windows Explorer -> Folder Options -> View - make sure you are not using the sharing wizard.

Finally map your folders with Map Network Drive, NET USE Z: \\server\folder, or in Active Directory for a domain connected machine, make sure the Home Folders are set.   ... Thinkpads_User
