Hi - We have a new Windows 2012 Essentials server in a non-domain environment and I'm trying to set up a shared folder so that anyone in our school can access this shared folder without having to enter any credentials, and it doesn't seem to be working. Initially I set it up on the data drive (D), right click/properties/sharing and chose everyone with full control. If I go to a computer within the network and do a start/run - \\abcserver it asks me for a username and password. Then, after reading that in order for this to happen, without making everyone have to use credentials, the shared folder needs to be placed and shared in the public profile on the server. I did that, but its still asking for a username/password. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
