Did you try turning off the public folder sharing in the advanced sharing setup?

I've managed to unshare every folder and all the public stuff. Now only my shared folders appear and AppData folder leading to empty libraries folder (check screenshot).


But if i open users folder on network on this computer, it will show whole contents of it.

Still nothing appears under homegroup.

I just tested out sharing a single folder in my User name/User folder and it worked perfectly for me and I'm using Homegroups. If you are seeing a problem it has to do with the way you set up your network or there is a third party security or networking program involved.

Looking at your network tree I'd say you have a third party networking program installed there because it certainly doesn't look anything like mine.

I'm using Folder named Temp on my desktop for saving some data and testing stuff like network sharing in that case. I created that folder manually.

Using temp folder to share with is not advised and usually doesn't work very well. I'm not sure what is up with your network tree but it looks nothing like mine does.

If you are still having this problem it's probably because you set up Homegroups in a mixed Op system network which it's not made to do. It tends to cause the User folder to be shared for some strange reason.

I have zero problems sharing single files from my User folder with Homegroups so I can't say what the problem might be.

You aren't using Windows Explorer to share with from what I can see there.

This is what it's supposed to look like.

It is not temp folder. It is just a regular folder on the desktop named temp.

Do any of your libraries contain one of the desktop\temp folders?

Use Windows explorer for sharing not temp folders. Why on earth would you want to use a temp folder for sharing? I doubt that any of those temp folders have been indexed correctly either.

You aren't giving me any info to work with. You need to start by using Windows explorer to share with. And some info on what other Op systems are in your network would be helpful.

Nope. But maybe it have to do something with libraries.

When i installed Win7, i copied everything from backed up my documents folder directly into documents library. Was that OK?

What info exactly you need?

Ignore that temp folder, just pretend that is named "Data" or something else. It has nothing to do with windows temporary folders or anything else. Is just standard plain folder on the desktop with that name. I created that folder and gave it name Temp.
