The computers on our network are running Windows 7. One of the machines is denying access to some of the folders on a shared drive but the files can be accessed from all other machines?

Is it the same user logged onto all of these machines? Do you have the same problem if you run it as an administrator?

When connecting to the share, try providing the credentials in this format:

computername\username
password

The credentials must be of a user that exist on the machine that is hosting the share.

OK, so you dont have a domain? If you log on with this same user, can you access the share localy from the machine?

Used all the suggestions - thanks.  Resolved the issue by backing up all the files and then deleting all  the original and restoring the files from the backup. Seemed to work but still not sure exactly why!
