Sharing Win 8 & 7
Posted on 2013-06-16
I have a client who I need to share a folder on one desktop to another and secure it so no one else can get to it. We are in a workgroup environment. One machine is Win 8, the other Win 7, both x64. From Win 7 machine to Win 8, I can access the specific folder no problem. I am unable to add anything to the folder from the Win 7 to Win 8 machine. It says I don't have rights/permissions. From the Win 8 machine, I can see the Win 7 folder, but am unable to open or add, etc. with it.
For sharing on both folders, I have everyone with full permissions, the local admin, and the local user also with full permissions. I am not able to add either user to the folder share on it's opposite location. Finally, when the sharing is setup right, I want to be able to remove the everyone group from both folders so that only the two users have any access to the folder.
Yes, I've missed something simple and need another pair of eyes on it.
