hi, all the files and folders are shared between the 3 laptops, but not the external hard drive.

thanks

Yes I do it. Just as you do with any other drive. Right click the drive or Partition in Windows Explorer and choose share set the settings for share.

PS the computer that the drive is connected to as to be switched on to share

not enough server storage to process this command.


thanks all
