I am now viewing both the shared folders I specifically created for sharing within my home network, and the Users folders on two windows 7 computers also, and want to know why this is happening, and how I can fix it?
What I do not see are any Public folders.
I can see and access everything within the Users folders on all other machines on the network, both Windows 7 and Windows XP, but the Windows 7 computers do not see anything on the XP machine except specifically shared folders, which is how I expect sharing to operate.
I am not using homegroup and the shared folders are on the desktop of both Windows 7 computers. Could this be the problem, that if a shared folder is created on the desktop, that it somehow magically transforms the parent folders to be shared also?
