network sharing problem

  George-1702993 21:08 16 Feb 2011

I have recently purchased a laptop and I'm trying to connect it to my desktop via network sharing. Every time there is an error coming back saying "\\Computer name\Users is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. The specified network name is not longer available"

Now I have enabled the password from my desktop and still no result. I have also been sharing files from this Desktop to a blu-ray and a mac and it worked.

Any advice?

Try this -
Go to 'my computer' right click on the drive/folder you want to share and click on 'properties'...then to the security tab, click 'edit', then 'add', then click the 'find now' button to list everything, add 'everyone' and set permissions to full control.
