I recently got a new computer (OptiPlex). My two older computers are E520 and Studio Laptop. On the new computer, I can see and work with files on both the older computers, but on both the older computers I can see the OptiPlex computer name, but can't open a folder or file on it -- I just get a message "Windows cannot access \\DELLOPTIPLEX". How can I fix this? All computers are running Windows 7 Pro; the E520 has 32-bit and the other two have 64-bit.
BTW, in the screen shots a very old computer (Dimension) is also shown; it has no keyboard or monitor, and is just used to store old files. I can access its files from all the other computers, for what it's worth. It is running Windows XP.
You need to make sure the network profile is "Work", then check if, on advanced sharing settings, you have "Turn on file and printer sharing" checked.
The same with "Turn Off password protected sharing".
