Windows 7: Issue in accessing shared partition on the same network.

16 Nov 2015   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Issue in accessing shared partition on the same network.

Hello everyone, there are 3 PC's connected to the same network I had to format one of the PC from 64bit windows 7 to 32 bit windows 7 professional after the format and the re installation of all the drivers and other software's I did the map network drive but wasn't able to access the shared partition from another PC which was previously accessible before I did the format.
I can access the Users folder in C: partition but cannot access the G: partition I've tried disabling antivirus and the firewall but still no joy.
After I failed to connect to G: I created a folder named server drive in the G: which I was able to access from the win 7 32 bit system so I moved all the files and folders in g partition to the newly created server drive folder also in the same partition but now the issue is that I cannot access all the files I moved to the server drive folder only a partial amount of files and folders are accessible. One more thing the other pc on this network isn't having any issue getting to G: partition or the server drive folder.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this thread and for your support I also apologize in advance if I've failed to mention something.

The issue is now fixed the fix was giving "everyone" and "network" full permission under advance sharing permission and then under the security tab adding "everyone" and "network" and "administrators" and "users" and "authenticated users" and then give them all full permissions.

Now the pc which was having trouble accessing the all the files in the shared folder can now access them without any problem
