cant map network drive in windows 7

I have shared 2 folder in windows 2012.

folder A maps fine to windows 7.

folder B refuses to map and just says access denied on windows 7.

I believe this is a common problem, registry fix?

Do you have all the permissions set correctly?  Both the share and the local permissions on the 2012 box?

Don ThomsonCommented:
If the folders are being shared on a Server then you need to make sure that the Security tab allows the Win 7 user read/Write access at the very least.

If you are sharing the folders from a Windows 7 machine then either you need to set the security up on each shared folder to either specifically allow the Domain user trying to map the drive access or give everyone full access.

Under advanced network setting see if any of the choices would prevent connecting to the share.

If you are not on a domain network - then you probably need to ensure that the user-code password of the sharing PC is put in.  The file and printer sharing must be allowed on both machines.

From the Windows 7 machine, using Windows Explorer, can you browse to \\servername and see FolderA and FolderB both listed as shares?

Can you browse into each of the folders?

(I.E. Identifying whether the problem seems to be with mapping the drives, or with accessing the share in general.)
