Homegroup file sharing

I have a homegroup created... it is working great in regards to sharing and editing of docs.

I would like to be able to add files to folders on other computers form my computer. It is saying I don't have the permission for that. Is there a way to give myself permission to add files to folders?

You have to open shares on all the PC's for those folders you want to copy or save files on, and create the same User Accounts on all those PC's and make sure they are members of the group that have access to those folders. The Same user on every PC will need the same password.

Generally though it is better and easier to manage if you just have one PC which you designate as "server" PC, and store all those files which are used by the others centrally on that PC. Also make sure you back the files up to some USB disks or similar.
