Windows 7: Can't see all public folders

Can't see all public folders

I have a handful of folders that I have moved into Public Documents on my W7 machine. All but two of them can be seen from Shared Documents on my XP3 machine. I have compared Properties between folders that can be seen and those that can't, to no avail. I can't see any differences. Any thoughts on how I can get these to be seen or what I should look for?

This sounds like a permissions problem on the folders you can't see. Try adding "Everyone" to the list. The link below shows you how.
