Windows 7: Sharing Woes...

03 Apr 2009   #1

Sharing Woes...

Hey guys,

I recently upgraded from 7000 to 7068 and since then have been having issues sharing...

Let me take you back a little bit.

I have an Archos 605 Wi Fi...(cue the clipart)...

Anyway, I have it in my bedroom on a docking station.

On my computer, I have a folder called 'downloads' which I put all my media in and then stream to my bedroom to watch whilst I fall asleep.

Well, with XP and with the last build of 7, I could share it and it would also share the sub folders.

However, since I upgraded, I haven't been able to get into the subfolders. Every time I go into sharing and change the sharing privileges and click save, it doesn't seem to save them.

Anyway, point being, if I move files in those sub folders to the main folder, they're shared and I can access them, but I can't get it into the subfolders, no matter how I try to share it.

Any ideas?

Still can't get sharing to work right on 7068.

Cool, thanks for that info about IPv6 and homegroups. That's something I didn't know.
