Why I cannot see the folders PHOTOS C: and the RollablePlanter folder from other machines.
What can I do to make them seen from other machines.
Please advise. Thank you.

    Have you verified that everything is configured in Networking and Sharing Center in Control Panel.  I think you still have to setup the sharing.

    I went to network sharing center however I was not sure where to look. Several places showed file and printer sharing were turned on. Where are you talking about exactly. I do not see it and I am thinking I can see..........from the other machines the Public folder.
    However I do not see the PHOTOS C: drive then the Public Folder with the RollablePlanter folder.....
    Can you guys look at this again and rethink that....?

    you are viewing this from your local machine or from remote? (another machine)?? if from another machine from the local machine go to c:\users\ and right click on public

    remove EVERYONE by unchecking it then add EVERYONE give them full control, apply, ok then check from the remote machine
