Trouble Mapping Networked DRIVES Over Win7 Workgroup
Ok so we're a small photo studio that has decided to add even more redundancy to our servers by choosing 2 of our fastest performing PC's to host 4x2TB RAID arrays. These are strictly for backup of our main working server only (Linux based), as it loves to act up on us in the middle of our busy season.
Here's a quick rundown of what's going on...
Now the problem I'm having is that Windows 7 doesn't seem to want to let me share the actual hard drives. When I try, i'm told that access is denied for me. However if I create a folder inside of the drive and share that, I have no problem mapping it to other computers.
So in short:
Mapping Shared HDD = FAIL
Mapping Folder in Shared HDD = OK
But...I don't want to just bypass this issue with a simple folder share. I want to share the actual drives. So how can I get this done? All ways so far have led me to a complete dead end. I feel like I'm going crazy.

If you need to share the root of the drive so that nobody in the LAN has any restrictions you need to go into the Security tab and Add "Everyone" there as well. The link below shows you how.
