I have my work network setup with ALL Windows 7 machines and up until recently I have had no problems mapping network drives. Now, I'm having trouble mapping a network drive but only from a specific computer, my laptop. I have multiple other PC's on my network mapped to the specific drive in question, which is on my PC. I also have 2 other drives on this PC that are shared with all other computers on my network mapped to them. What is weird is that my laptop (the one that I'm having problems with) is able to connect to one of my other shared drives just fine but not the other. One of the drives is an external HD with eSata, which is the one it can connect to. The other 2 drives are internal HD on my computer, those are the 2 drives I cannot connect to because it says I need permission to connect.
The drives are shared with everyone else on my network just fine and I have been through the normal issues, Network Discovery is ON, password protected sharing is OFF, etc. Like I said, all other computers on this network connect to these drives with no problems. We are all in the same workgroup and homegroup.
I'm trying to understand why this one laptop can't connect to 2 specific drives because it says I don't have permission. When trying to map from my PC to the laptop (basically just going the opposite way to test it) I get the same error.
The error message says "Windows cannot access \\PC\Drive" You do not have permission to access _____. Contact your network admin to request access.
I am able to connect to the Users folder just fine, just not the drive that I need to connect to.
I have attached screenshots of the error messages.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
