Two users on their own machines have equal rights to a shared folder on a windows 2003 R2 machine.
Both are running win 7 home edition
'My Computer' on the first shows the share connected as a lettered network drive of 200GB with a green bar and 26GB free space equal to the same the server shows on its console.
The other machine shows the same shared folder share connected as a lettered network drive of only 2GB with a RED bar and ONLY 1.2MB free space.
As win 7 Home cannot connect to a domain, both machines are set in a workgroup which is the same name as the domain the server is in.
The Win 7 Home on the first machine is a 1 year older edition than the 2nd...that's all that is different. (So I am reluctant to update the earlier one)
What registry or other setting controls this network drive size determination in Win7 Home such that one machine is getting it wrong.?
Is this a 'no solution' problem SO upgrading to Win 7 Pro is the only way, and all will be solved when I join the machines to the domain?
