Windows 7: Windows Sharing - Can only get Read Only access

Windows Sharing - Can only get Read Only access

Hi all,

I am currently trying to share folders between my PC and Mac. I have got sharing set up ok as I can share my PC home (user) folder with read/write access from my mac. However with my partitioned hard drives (NTFS and ExFat), I can only seem to get read only access. I have tried configuring the folders that Everyone has read/write access but no luck. No matter if its the whole hard drive or just a single folder, it doesn't seem to work. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated.


Edit: I am connecting via SMB and the folders mount ok. On my Mac it states I have 'custom' access to the home drive, not sure why it appears like this.
