Windows 7: User Account Sharing Permissions issue

User Account Sharing Permissions issue

Hey I am trying to access songs from my user account on my pc (Which is saved in "My Music" [so in my user folder]) from My Samsung Galaxy phone using a program called All Share (it uses DLNA).

When I try getting songs from other user accounts on the PC it works fine and even from other PC's. However when i try from my user account it can't!

I remember messing with the Sharing permissions before in the security Tab and now I have mine (Baladya) on Full Control.. When i try to change my permissions the error in the image below comes up! Why is access denied when i am an Administrator myself 0.o Also Homeusers also have "Full Control".

When i try going to my folder and clicking "Share With" from the toolbar above and I choose 'Everybody' it doesnt change ; when I click it again it's on 'Nobody' ??

Tried right clicking on my folder > Properties>Sharing>Advanced Sharing>Check'Share this folder'>Permissions>Full Control. Still I can't access it from my phone.

What am I missing there? Is there a way to just return everything to default :S

Would really appreciate the help

What you have done is tried to change permissions for the whole User account folder which includes certain Hidden folders like AppData for your user Login and you are not allowed to change the permissions of them whatever account you use

As for your sharing issue can I ask what it is your problem is?

Sorry if I am confused

Many Thanks,
