Windows 7: Local Network Sharing Issues

I did exactly as you said and get the exact same result. I see the shared drive. When I try to access it it gives the same error message.

Whether I try to access it normally via Network or by typing in the full URL as you described it comes up like this:

This, despite the fact that in the share wizard you directed me to I said to give all users read access to the drive.

And also, the other computer on the network accesses this drive with no difficulty whatsoever.

Hi mate i have done the same thing as you more a less I have an external 1TB drive attached to my media machine which i use to backup everything on from all my other machines.

The first part of the sharing you setup looks exactly the same as mine, i think maybe you have not set the permissions on the security tab?(right click drive and select propitites then security) Just make sure "everyone" is in the list and that they have read permissions.

If this has not been set its going to be the reason why the other machines cannot access the drive. Just make sure both the sharing and security tabs are both setup, as i said earlier the sharing tab looks spot on

If for some reason you are still having issues, perhaps try creating a user account on the machine with the attached drive you wish to share for all the users you wish to have access to it. Just make sure there username and password are the same as there other respective machines

'Everyone' is not an option in the list. I have 'Authenticated Users' selected. One of the other computers on the network is able to access the drive fine. The other gives that error message.

Also, are you saying I should create an account on all three computers with the same username and password? Creating three separate accounts. One on each computer. Each with the same username and password? I'm sorry that just doesn't make sense to me. What would it matter if usernames on different computers were the same?

"Everyone" will not show in the list by default in the security tab i should have mentioned that sorry. Right click the shared drive go properties-security. On the security where it has a list of users it will say "edit" click on this then in the new window click "add". Another window will appear so in the bottom box called "enter the objects name" type in "everyone" then click on "check names" It should reconize the "everyone" group. Click ok and when you go back to the next screen you will now see "everyone" in the list. Just tick whatever permissions you wish to assaign to the "everyone" group for the drive and click appy.

That should do the trick
