You will sometimes need to go into the Security settings of the drive in order to share it's contents. This needs to be done in addition to the regular permissions.
To share the entire drive:
Open My Computer -> right click Local Disk D or which ever drive letter your drive is using -> select Properties -> select Security tab -> click Edit button -> click Add button -> enter the name of the User you want to set Security permissions (it is the same user name you've set the sharing permissions for, ex. Everyone will set the read permissions to every user. Put check marks in the boxes for full access and control -> click OK hit apply-> select the desired permissions -> click OK -> wait while permissions are set -> and your Done.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I would not have figured that out myself. I never even knew about the Security tab. Learn something new every day.
