Blocked Sharing?

Have you blocked "sharing" on that folder?

Yes, it is blocked, but I did not do that.
That explains why.
Thank you.

I have had that happen to me.
I think program glitches may be responsible.
I don't know which programs have done it on my PC, as it's only happened a couple of times.

Actually, that's the default behavior of Windows 7 for your user folder, for what it's worth.

Good point.

It has happened to me with other folders though.

Yes, there are folders that (by default) Windows doesn't want you to share .

I guess I should have been more specific

That's fair enough.

I guess I should have been more specific.
It has happened to folders that I have created (on different partitions to the OS) and I didn't block sharing.
