Have I shared correctly - is the correct??

Greetings;

I have two PCS running WIN 7 that are networked through a switch.

I've been having issues with sharing folders & beleive I have it sorted now. But, want to check that the below is correct.

I have shared to everyone and to the home network.

I note that I can see folder changes, etc in the home network area and network area of the both PCs. But, I cannot see any changes directly in the C: Drive of each computer.

Is this what I should be seeing?

Thank you, Iain

Yes, that looks fine. You shouldn't be able to see the C: drive unless it is shared,

If you open Libraries, hover the mouse over each folder, it will show which is shared at the bottom of the page. On my PC, none are shared. Open your Pictures Library, hover on Sample Pictures, it will show as Shared, as its included with the OS, files you added are not.
