Windows 2000 Networking

I have a PC [mainly used to backup] networked to my main workstation via twisted cable & have managed to totally bollix up my access to the backup machine. The message
"[Drive] is not accessible. Access is denied"
is displayed when trying to access.

There is a distinct possibility that I have removed access rights for "Everyone" [there is no "Sharing" tab available when right clicking for Properties.]
Anyone know how to correct this?

If not, is there a way to just delete the backup PC from the Workgroup and start again? Or delete the Workgroup? Or delete the network connection & start again ["Delete" option is greyed out when right clicking the connection in Network & Dial Up Connections of Control Panel]. I can find much advice on adding computers or shares or workgroups but nothing on removing [and boy, have I tried removing!]

Any help will be gratefully received.

Restored access by logging on to the backup machine & right clicking Drive Properties - Security Tab was available here and I could re-asign access.

Would still like to know how to remove a computer from Workgroup, though!
