Windows 7: Need "Permission"

Need "Permission"

Computer A is trying to open C:\Users\Thewolfe\AppData\Local folder on Computer B

I can get into My Docs, etc on Computer B.

I'm trying to get to my Outlook folder in the Microsoft folder on Computer B.

It tells me I don't have permission.

Also I "shared" the "Local" folder on Computer B which didn't help so I'd like to "un-share" that folder but don't see that option.

If you go to "share with" and choose "nobody" it will unshare or remove the share from the network.

I've been there also, if you share out a folder more than once you end up with two copies on your other machines. To get rid of the extra share you just unshare by selecting "nobody" and the extra share copy vanishes.
