domain user needs to map home drive

Dear Experts

I have got my work laptop (windows 7) that was configured to access a domain work.

When I log in to my laptop the username that was assigned to me is like that : country\d50001122,,,,,,,,made it up and password is : forum

When I am at home I want to backup my work from the laptop to a network drive on my home desktop computer (called storage1).

On my desktop computer I tried to create a username d50001122 ( I removed the country with slash) and with same domain password.

Then I enabled the sharing and the security on my home drive.

I tried from my laptop to access that drive but error message pops us :

Quote:
You do not have permission to access \\homedesktop\storage1. Contact your network administrator to request access
Did i miss something ? is that error because of user is a domain user ?

Regards

Try going into the Home drive then make adjustments to the Security tab of the C:>Users folder per the link below.
