Windows 7: Cannot connect to \\server\c

Cannot connect to \\server\c

I have replaced the hard drive in our server, and set all sharing and permissions to access it. I can access the server with all computers but one.
I'm assuming the issue is with the PC that cannot access the server and have confirmed the following: in services.exe HomegroupListener & HomegroupProvider are set at manual and both started, as is Peer Name Resolution Protocol, Peer Networking Grouping, and Peer Networking Identity Manager. I can't think of what else to try, but surely I'm missing something. All PCs on the same named Homegroup and are set with the same password.

What error do you get have you shared all drive c again as by default it's shared as c$

Try adding the dollar sign as suggested. Also try using the ipaddress rather than the server name.

Windows cannot access \\Server\c$ (Using the map network drive dialog, windows adds the $--as c$--and I also tried adding it manually, but neither works.)

Thank you and samuria for the replies. Issue was carelessness, as I had one silly errant character in my script that didn't belong.
Thanx, Tipiford
