More basic version...I have just upgraded to Win 7 from Vista and have a shared folder on my now Win 7 PC but I can't find it...where is it? My other PC on the network can see it.
Now, I have just accessed the folder from my other PC and all of a sudden it now shows up in my Network on my Win 7 PC...very strange weird happenings!
My question still is though, where it is? On my hard drive I mean.
Can you access it by it's UNC name?
Open any explorer window in the address bar (not the search bar) type the share name in the form of \\<computername>\<sharename>
For example: My machine is named Amps and I have a share named music...
If I type in \\amps\music
it will open the share for me...
Also you should be able to see and edit your shares in FSMGMT.MSC ... Hold the Windows key down and type an R... in the run dialog type FSMGMT.MSC and click OK. This will show you the shares and their local paths... But a word of caution... don't edit any share with a $ at the end... those are administrative, needed by windows.
