Shared drive doesn't let to write or delete!

Hi

I have shared one *drive* on my desktop (full permission, everyone) pc so that I can sync it with my laptop. But my sync software kept giving error that it can't write few files on it so when I checked I found that I am not able delete or write any file to the drive from other laptop (via network).

But I CAN write or delete from any *sub-folders* of the same drive from other laptop via network! Why is it so?
How could I resolve it?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Yes, as you found out, settings on the security tab do matter.
