Wireless Access to D: Drive

I have a new Win7 desktop plugged in to my home wireless network. Previously I had an XP desktop connected. I am finding it very difficult to access the drives on the Win7 machine using my Notebook which is on the wireless network. I can access a few directories on C: drive under \user\public . I have opened up every firewall and sharing box I can find especially on the drive I am trying to access which happens to be E: . Its a partition on the HD. How can I get fast, complete access to this partition from my notebook via the network. Thanks

To access the entire drive you would need to allow for sharing on the permissions tab but also the Security tab of the drive needs to be adjusted to share out the entire drive. Adding full control for Everyone will allow you access to the drive.
