I have a couple of PC's in the house and one runs W7. I can access some folders, "recorded tv shows" but not others "My documents" from another PC running XP.
I thought I had turned off password protection on the W7 PC but I still get an access denied message when trying to open My documents.
What should I be doing on the W7 PC to allow access to my files?
I found that trying to network the XP PC with the two Windows 7 PC an absolute nightmare, in fact I never did get it to work, so I switched the XP PC to Windows 7 which, surprisingly for Microsoft is very simple to network.
I will mark this as solved even though it is not quite. I can access some files, share a printer and I can move stuff from the W7 PC using ftp to my Linux box.
I cant fathom why Microsoft have made networking from W7 to XP so tricky.
