Sorry for my last post, i badly read your previous one.

Tried to share file from my user folder as you said. And still no. Appears in \\PC\Users\Username folder, but not in homegroup.

EDIT:

Actually when i just share file from my user folder, PC won't appear in homegroup list. But if i share another folder which is not in users for example C:\SharedFolder, PC will show up in Homegroup list but with only SharedFolder which i have on C:\

Maybe you haven't checked off the things you want to share with the Homegroup yet? The first picture shows what needs to be checked.

You seem to have more problems than just the User folder because the other machines in the Homegroup should be showing up all the time. I'm not sure why that is so.

Your going to have to go down this Homegroup check list and make sure that everything is in order before we go any further.
Ultimate Troubleshooting Guide for Windows 7 HomeGroup Connection Issues

This first page needs to have these shared items checked in order for Homegroup sharing to work. This is really covering some basic stuff here.

You also might want to check under the Advance Network Settings to make sure that everything is like the second picture below.

I used C:\SharedFolder just for a test to see if homegroup connection is working. I guess folder in root is most likely going to work, so i tested with it.

Anyway, i just checked everything on that list and Pictures, Music, Videos, Documents folders appeared under Homegroup. But still no file that i shared.

Best to test Homegroups with GUI from folder icon. Try the walk though link I posted because there are other problems here besides the User folder. After the check list it may work best to leave the Homegroup from all machines then create a new Homegroup then join that Homegroup using the new Homegroup password from all machines and try again.

It's not connectinon issue. I can share stuff that are not inside users folder without problems.

I already tried leaving everywhere and rejoining, but it didn't help.
