I checked the drives permissions and gave my user account full access to the drive and all sub-directories thinking it maybe a perm isssue. But I still get the same error. Anyone else had this problem?
For sharing accross drives, besides the usual permissions settings you may need to go into the Advanced Security settings and make some adjustments.
Open My Computer -> right click Local Disk D, or which ever drive you need to share -> 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 or>, ex. Everyone will set the read permissions to every user which will attempt to connect to your shared drive) -> click OK -> select the desired permissions -> click OK -> wait while permissions are set -> and your Done.
Or maybe a setting or something else is off, the link below might help in that respect. http://helpdeskgeek.com/windows-7/wi...-to-homegroup/
Of course there is always the possibility that an A/V software or third party firewall is blocking the Homegroup interface.
