Windows 7 PRO Workgroup Not Showing Shares to all Users
Posted on 2013-09-20
I have inherited a client that has 13 computers connected as a Workgroup all running Windows 7 Pro. I would have advised them long ago to get a server, but not in the budget for them right now.... The problem seems to lie with the Windows 7 Pro PC that is acting as the host (server) for all of their shares. One person will upload a new pictures to the server but only he can see the uploaded files for 1 to several days. Even if I go to the server itself, I cannot see what he has uploaded. However, from his desktop, the files are located at //server/shares/pictures.... After a couple of days, the files "magically" appear for everyone else. I have already tried the following registry edits that I gleaned from other posts...
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management----changing LargeSystemCache to 1
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Parameters----Changing size to 3
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is a small town newspaper and making deadlines having to sneaker net pictures and files is getting old really fast.
