Sharing a folder on Windows 10

Hi, i have a folder on a Windows 10 PC (PC A) that i want to share with another PC (PC B). The folder on PC A is assigned to an account with a password. I can see the folder on PC A across the network on PC B but it doesn't give me any sign-in options (Account Name/ Password). I just keep getting the message 'You do not have permission to access \\PC_NAME\Folder' contact your network administrator to request access.

I'm sure this used to work fine!
Thanks for any help
