My laptop and home computer are networked, but the file sharing only works one way.
My laptop, running XP Professional, is happy to share files with the Home PC, running XP Home. However the Home PC will not allow files to be shared.
Using Windows Explorer to view the My Network Places, Local Network folder the Home PC will happily read files on the Laptop, but will not read the Home PC files giving the following message:
""File" is not accessible. You might not have permission to access this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Not enough storage is available to process this command"
What do I need to do to be able to share the Home PC files?
1. Does your desktop user account have Administrator rights (check in Control Panel > User Accounts).
2. Disable the XP Firewall (Control Panel > Network Connections, right-click your network connection, Advanced).
3. You can create a new folder anywhere - it doesn't need to be in Network anything. Try creating a new Folder on C:, right-click it, choose Properties > Sharing, tick 'share this folder on the network'.
