Cannot access shared drive on network running Windows 7 OS
Posted on 2011-03-16
Hello Again Experts -
I have two computers on a home network. Each has been configured so that their respective drives C are available to everyone else on the netwok as "SharedC".
But, when I go into either comoputer trying to get access to drive on the other computer, I get the message:
Windows cannot access \\GORDON-PC\SharedC
You do not have permission to access \\GORDON-PC\SharedC. Contact your network administrator to request access."
Well, I am the administrator. About the only place where I am in charge in this life.
I have setup the sharing of each drive with full access rights to eveyone. Then, I went into the Control Panel and changed the advanced sharing settings so that I "Turned on file and printer sharing". In otherwords, I think that I have done everything correctly, but access is still denied.
Any idea of what is going on here?
