Can't access server files from Window7 machine
Posted on 2014-02-13
This should be simple, but I can't get this to work. I have spent a couple of days reading posts on this problem, and I'm still stumped.
I moved a servers to a new site, and I am setting up a small network. Right now I have two windows7 systems I want to bring up on the network.
A small laptop with which has Windows 7 starter . This system works fine on the network. I can access all of the server files.
The problem is a work-station is running window 7(home premium) . I upgraded this to ultimate, but that didn't fix the problem.
This system can see the server, but I can't see or access any of the files.
-Server and systems are all set to the same work-group
-The server provides DHCP.
-I have the server as the work-group & domain controller. I disabled this and it didn't make any difference.
-I have uninstalled & reinstalled client on the windows card system.
This may be a clue - the system sees the server, but can't access any files. The system doesn't see the laptop. The laptop has full access to the server, but doesn't see the other windows7 system.
