There has to be a better way of sharing folders to specific users on the same network who are not using the same computer..
There are a couple ways to do this, you can supposidly do this by using your Windows live messenger name to share with only that user. The tutorial below shows you how. Let me know if it works because I havn't had a chance to try this yet and it appears to be experimental at this stage. http://www.neowin.net/news/main/09/0...s-in-homegroup
The other method is in the link below but it's a royal pita in my opinion, but it's the correct way to do this. Using live messenger account names seems much easier to me. Windows 7 to Windows XP Permissions Help
