access control list

you get to it by right-clicking on a folder and look at the Security tab (with simple file sharing disabled).

Windows XP has admin shares too. Like

\\computer\c$

Administrators can access it.
Here's a few screenies from admin account on XP;

Simple file sharing has been disabled from the off really.
Still no go after the new share was set too

Entries in the ACL will take precedence over share permissions. Just because the Everyone group is allowed access to the C share, it does NOT mean the Everyone group can access C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.

I think the easiest way may be:

In Windows 7, map the shared C: drive using a username and password that exists on the Windows XP machine. Then you will have the same permissions as if you were actually sitting at the XP computer.

Tools > Map Network Drive

Again, connect using the username and password of an admin that exists on the XP machine.

Did you log in using Administrator account? or Lucy? (which one?)

What does the ACL look like for the Administrator folder?

I am testing something similar on my computers at home and all is working well. I can access the C:\Documents and Settings\Username of my XP computer from my Win7 computer.

On the XP computer, go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Security Options

What is the value for Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts

It needs to be set Classic

Here's mine:

Administrator
Administrators
SYSTEM

Full Control on "This folder, subfolder, and files"

(You can see that info under the Advanced button)

I shared the C: drive on Windows XP

Then from Windows 7, I mapped the C: drive as Z: in My Computer using administrator credentials that exists on the XP machine.

I am not getting any "Access Denied" messages when browsing any of the folders inside Documents and Settings.

My Windows 7 settings are in default state. I have not changed a single thing dealing with file sharing.

JOB DONE!!!!!

I used cacls on XP

I then made sure that my settings matched up to yours. (I set my MND to T)

Just for good measure i added an 'Everyone' entry to the ACL with Full Control to the 'major' folders in needed access to.

My complete access to the XP lappy & Remote desktop connections are now resumed.

Still bemused as to why that it changed over night.

You sup3rsprt, are a true gent. Your ongoing help tonight (23.29 now) has been greatly appreciated. I hope to help you sometime in the future!

Have some rep. on me

I'n happy your problem it's solved but giving everyone full permissions it's not safe!
