Folder Sharing..

  BaboonBoy22 16:44 02 Jun 2008

Why is it when I select to share one folder, it shares my "user" folder i.e. everything.
I've tried to see if there's something obvious I'm missing but nothing. I am very new to vista and haven't set up file sharing before.
I have my xp pc working fine, 1 folder I want to access and I can. Any clues?
(I've done all the necessaries, as I can share between the two, I'm just sharing too much on the vista machine)

I'm guessing by the lack of response that this is something that I'm going to have to live with or try and work out myself

or ask in a vista forum?

Solved it.. for some reason it wouldn't work doing it through my computer or right clicking and hitting share. Had to go through properties, advanced sharing, and that seems too work. I don't know.. just one of those things I guess. Marg7 thanks for the link, it helped to find it, cheers
