I have a new Windows 7 PC on my network. All the other PCs on the network are Windows XP.
I have created the network as a "Work" network (not a home network)., In the Advanced Sharing Settings for the Work network, "Turn on network discovery" is checked. "Turn on file and printer sharing" is checked, "Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the public folders" is checked and "Turn off password protected sharing" is checked.
Here's my problem:
I created a share for a drive on the Windows 7 PC. Now the Windows XP machines can see the drive and the entire list of folders on the drive, but when I click on any folder, I get a popup that says
" [Folder Name] is not accessible. Access is denied. "
I have checked the double-checked the settings. Everyone has full control, and the XP machines can see the entire folder tree, but access to individual files and folders is denied.
I thought permissions from the root were supposed to be automatically inherited. What's wrong?
Thanks very much for any information.
