Windows 7: File sharing- Help!!!

File sharing- Help!!!

Hello everyone... I am having some issues with not having access to my pictures folder. Here is the story... I have a ps3 and I stream videos, photos and music to it... I use to have my windows media player as my media server as well... I just formated and re-installed windows 7 yesterday and now I can not access my pictures folder or my music.... No thumbnails OR anything! It does have the lock on it and I have tried to gain access but was not successful I also have a question.... when I right click on the My pictures folder and go to properties/security ... there are 3 names in the box - Headman (Headman-PC\Headman) and Administrator (Headman-PC\Administrator) and Administrators (Headman-PC\Administrators) ... is this the issue or will it cause an issue? Thank you so very much!

Adam

I can get into the folder but can not view anything(Thumbs included) The message I get when I try to open a photo is "Windows photo viewer can't open this picture because you don't have correct permissions to access the file location"

Yes the folder is on Drive E (C - D - E are the 3HDD's) I am logged in as Headman but I thought that was the Administrator? When I go to user accounts and family safety in the control panel it show "Headman as administrator. Headman was the name of my old install as well before I formated and re-installed. Any ideals?

C has windows and all programs and D and E are just for photos/music/downloads... ect.

The folder is on E and it had permission to share with my ps3 but I formated and reinstalled windows but I can't access the files in that folder. Thank you for your help!
