Windows 7: Share folder wizard has vanished

Share folder wizard has vanished


I set up my folders to share over SMB, but it appears I didn't set up all of them to share with everyone.

I'm trying to re share them but I can't seem to get to the same wizard. When i right click on a folder it gives me the option to 'Share With ...' rather than just 'Share ...'

If i click 'Share with ...' it takes me into the Folder Properties window and selects the sharing tab. it doesn't bring up the normal windows share wizard. Any ideas how I get back to the normal windows 7 share wizard?

Are you talking about this wizard? Shared Folder Creation Wizard Shortcut - Create
Or this- Tools> folder options> view tab> check 'Use sharing wizard' ?
