I have a desktop running Windows 7 professional 64-bit.
I have a laptop running Windows 7 Home 64-bit.
I want to share partitions on the laptop so I can copy files (generally using Syncback) from the desktop to the laptop.
So, I go into properties, select Share With and Advanced Sharing.
Then into Advanced Sharing where I give the partition a unique name.
Then select Permissions.
HOW do I set the permission so my account on the desktop can copy files to the laptop? I use the same username and password on both boxes. I specified my username on the laptop and got a user of laptopname\username.
On the desktop I can look in "Network", see the laptop, AND see the shared partition. But, when I try to copy a file from the desktop to the partition I get a "try again" and it says "You need permission to perform this action"
I don't want to give "Everyone" full control, but that's the only way I've been able to get this work...
I presume this is a security problem, and if it is, how do I do this so I have to be my account to do the copies?
