Shared drives issue's

Ok has anyone experienced this, I have 3 drives shared from windows 7 RTM, to windows 7 7100. everytrhing works ok ubtil I try to move, copy a file from one system to another. This makes my windows 7 rtm version loose it's network connection completely, I have to run the diagnose wizard and then it's ok. I can see and browser the folders for a week no problems. As soon as I try to copy or move a file over the network I kills my network connection only on the windows 7 rtm system. All the other computers in the house are ok. I have one system running linux and 4 others running the windows 7 7100 build that can share and get online with out any issue's. Please let me know if you have experienced this.

I remember someone else having a similar problem.

I would suggest that you use FTP to move files between computers. Something like Filezilla FTP server will be much more reliable and secure than Windows file sharing.

Thanks for the reply, i know i can use FTP. I'm now more concerned about the sharing issue, where it works ok but as soon as I try and move files it kills my connection.

Windows has always had issues with file shares. If I were you, I wouldn't waste my time being concerned about it. Just find another solution.

if you are really that concerned, do a search in this forum for topics related to the same issues. Maybe you can find a solution, but besides clean reinstalling Windows, I kind of doubt it. It might be a bug in your version.
