Sharing files and folder ?????????????????? Help

Q: Sharing files and folder ?????????????????? Help

I have two "Window XP Home" computers on a home network. After setting up the network to share internet connection, I decided I could share files and for a time it worked. Now for some reason my computer when I try to get something off the daughters says access denied talk to the admin. I went to hers the other day and while on it I checked the My Network Places and it does not even see the shared folders on mine. Is there a way to fix this??? and How???

A: Sharing files and folder ?????????????????? Help

maybe this will help http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic8914.html

another thing is to make sure the folders are set to allow the network to see them, i did this last night. my comp was able to see the drive but nothung in it, i had to set the setting on each folder to share on the network and that fixed it.

Hi Guy's,

I will explain my small home network (1 PC & 1 Laptop). Not big eh ? OK

The PC is a shared PC running Windows XP media edition

The Laptop is also shared, but with my account (administrator) & a guest account running Vista home premium.

The set-up is my PC is connected to a wireless router by ethernet cable & the laptop is wireless.

What I am attempting to do is share files from the PC so I can access them on my laptop, but I do not want the guest or any other users of the laptop & PC to be able to read them. Is this possible & how would I go about doing it.

Thanks for your help

I cannot today share a folder which was shared last week.

No matter what I do with Sharing and Permissions I can no longer access it from another machine on my network.

It's shared to Everyone with full access and has a share name, yet trying to access it gives 'Access denied'.

My UAC is one notch down from the maximum.

I cannot use the search function in this forum as it won't let me input a search term.

A:Sharing Folder in Programme Files(x86)

Hello,

Can you confirm that the 'everyone' account has full permissions in the folders security tab and the permissions tab within advanced sharing?

Can you access the folder from the local PC ok? Have you changed your anti-virus or anything?

the link can be found here http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-11334_7-6232456-1.html?tag=nav
I have two computers a desktop and a laptop. I have comcast high-speed cable and i use linksys router to have wireless internet on my laptop. I want to share files and printers over the network. Both computers run XP.

I made a workgroup by going to control panel, network connections,"setup home or small office network" and followed the guidelines. My computer name is *** for my laptop and *** for my desktop. The workgroup name is ***. I did the setup for both computers.

I went to the default shared folder on my laptop and put some files in there to share and set it up so the hand icon displayed meaning that im sharing. I also did this w/ my printer connected to my laptop and desktop.

The problem is it doenst seem to work. When I go to control panel,add printer on my laptop it shows the workgroup name and the two subcatorgies which our the laptop computer name (***) and the desktop computer name ( ***) but shows no printers

if someone could help figure this out I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

Hello,

I'm sharing a folder on a Windows XP computer with 15,000 sub-folders/files over a small network. This folder used to be hosted in Windows Server 2003 machine. But after I made the switch to XP, accessing the shared folder over the network takes over 1 minute for the files to list.

Does anyone know what might be causing this slow performance? And is it related to the XP operating system?

Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I have a wireless network set up in my house and I want to share some of the folders on my computer so that other family members can listen to my music etc. When I click to turn Network Discovery on, and click apply, it just stays off, same goes for File Sharing.
When I try to turn public folder sharing on, after I click apply I get an error message saying "incorrect function". I have shared stuff on my work network so I'm not sure what's wrong here.

Thanks

Hello.i cant seem to figure out why i cant make it so that
my External USB2.0 drive defaults to stay on "share on

those extra few clicks every time i have to restart the

Also this is a NTFS drive and it always brings up
this "Folder Permissions"and wants to scan through every
file and folder on the drive.Anyway to stop this?I Have also drives that are FAT32 formated and this does not come up....Thanks
for any response...Lerch

 

A:Folder Sharing/Folder Permissions

The hard drive must be on before windows loads in order for sharing to be active (Turn on the drive before the computer).

If you turn on the drive after windows is loaded it will not be shared. You will have to restart your machine. The share is not gone but it is not used.

Note: Once you have a share running properly you can turn on and off the drive as long as your computer is not turned off.

I have 3 laptops in my home all running Vista Premium and Basic. Is there A way I can set a folder on all 3 laptops to share on the network?

A:Folder Sharing

Hi -

Here is some information from Microsoft on file sharing -

Windows Vista "How-to" - http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...e86151033.mspx

From TechNet - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../bb727037.aspx

Basically, the systems have to have the same Workgroup, network discovery, file sharing must be on and you will probably find yourself limited to the public folder on each system unless you designate other folder/files to be shared.

OK, so i still haven't quite got my head around file sharing/ACL/Permissions between W7 & XP....it's been a long week
For the sake of arguement, lets say i want to share my music folder.
The music folder is stored on my Vista partition (C) and i want to use W7 (i have ownership of the folder in W7) (A) to share to a XP computer on my home network (trusted). What entries to the ACL do i need for the XP user (admin) to be able to access the file? (hopefully avoiding the everyone group)
Also, in general which entries should be in the ACL? Some folders i have up to 5 different users/groups and on others i only have my account and the admin group. What's the standard?
Thanks in advance for your help

A:Folder Sharing

The XP user does not need to be in the ACL, because when accessing the shared folder you can just enter the username and password of an account that already exists on the Windows 7 computer.

Hi all, I've got a bunch of movies and TV shows downloaded onto my desktop. My shows are saved onto an external HD labeled K: and my movies are saved on an internal HD labeled D:.

From my laptop, I am able to map a network drive to K just fine for streaming video but it does not allow me to map to D. I've checked the share settings over and over and they look the same on both drives. The shared folder names are k and d respectively. I cannot even access the d folder through the network, even though it shows up there. When I double click on it I get:


Code:
You do not have permission to access \\compname\d. Contact your network administrator to request access.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

A:Folder Sharing

You may need to use the advanced security settings to share that drive. It's different than the regular permissions settings. I'm not sure why one drive would be different than the other but the procedure below should allow you to access that drive.

To share the entire drive:
Open My Computer -> right click Local Disk D or which ever drive letter your drive is using -> select Properties -> select Security tab -> click Edit button -> click Add button -> enter the name of the User you want to set Security permissions (it is the same user name you've set the sharing permissions for, ex. Everyone will set the read permissions to every user. Put check marks in the boxes for full access and control -> click OK hit apply-> select the desired permissions -> click OK -> wait while permissions are set -> and your Done.

You will also need to use the Advanced sharing tab Sharing>Advanced put a check in the box to share the drive, then click on the permissions tab and "add Everyone" then use the check boxes to allow Everyone full access. Hit the apply button on both windows.

In the My Documents folder on my PC I have a folder called "My Sharing Folder", it appeared when I installed something a while back and I deleted it but it returns each time on reboot. In the end I just left it and as there was nothing in the folder it was of no consequence. However yesterday I inadvertently put some music files I had downloaded into it by mistake. I thought it was just a simple cut and paste to move the files to the proper location but when I right click them I do not get the cut option, all it seems I can do is move them to the location via "Send To" as shortcuts while the files remain in the My Sharing Folder.
I deleted the folder once again but when I rebooted my PC earlier this evening it had returned and the files in it as well. I don't like having a folder on my PC of which I have no control over. Can anyone advise me how to delete these files and or delete the folder if possible.
Many thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

I'm using Windows XP with SP2 and I'd like to share a folder and make it available to everyone on a network.

Looks very simple isn'it ?
But let me tell you that I've been looking for a solution for weeks now. I've tried a lot of things and nothing worked. And I start to think that Windows XP has some secrets that still need to be discovered....

For making things very clear for everyone, I'm going to describe the whole problem.

I have a small network home. There is no domain, only a workgroup called home.
I have 3 computers all on Windows XP.

The first one : called proxy with IP 192.168.0.1 wich is also the DNS-server.
The second one : called me with IP 192.168.0.75
The third one : called laptop with IP 192.168.0.100


Names and IP are not important because on the second and the third computer the default gateway and the prefered DNS is 192.168.0.1 (the proxy).

If I take any of these computers and try to ping any other, it works fine. Also, in each computer 'My Network place', I can see all the other computers.


Now, when I share a folder on the second computer and I try to access it from another computer, an authentification box is displayed and I can't connect. I don't understand what's wrong. BTW, I'm not using the simple file sharing.

I tried to find asolution in In Administrative Tools-> Local Security Settings, modified some keys there, but still, an authentification is required.
I'm going crazy !!!

Hello,

There is an option stating that there is Advanced Sharing (under the Share tab) for some folders, and not for others (Look at the picture).
If I click on the Advanced sharing... link, it shows me that folder's Properties.
What is this all about? That doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

Let me say why this bothers me... Some folders' view settings that I have customized tend to always randomly keep resetting. How do I permanently get rid of this annoyance bull****.

A:Advanced Sharing For Some Folder, And Not For Others...

Please provide examples of which folder you don't see the advanced sharing option for.
The "Advanced Sharing" button you see there is a shortcut to the sharing tab of the folder properties. Which is where you can configure the ability to share files over your network. It has nothing to do with your folder view settings.

Hi guys, something similar has probably been asked before but I cannot quite figure it out

The problem is quite simple I need to have a certain directory on all of my windows 7 computers to have read/write access for all networked computers
that is i need to be able to access this directory from any pc and on any pc the directory is "C:\ProgramData\Pure Networks\Platform\ScreenCaptures" which is for network magic where is puts the screen capture files, basically the screen dumps need to be able to be copied out and then deleted on a regular basis, I have got it working on one laptop but that is it and i don't know why it works and the rest do not. on the rest i can only view the files but not copy,open or delete them, to make it simple of what i have done i have listed it below:

Shared all folders in the directory list for "everyone" and "homegroup"
given permission for the user class "everyone" to full control for this folder and all in chain
given the local user ownership of the files (all of them actually)
so to summarise i can access the folder but not do anything with the files, the permissions are set for full control and the sharing settings or set for "everyone" to have read/write access as well as for homegrouped computers to have read/write access

Unless neither computer have had their services changed?

I have Windows 7 and Windows XP install on my computer, both OS's are on seperate hard drives.

I want to save most data I use on Windows 7 onto my hard drive which has Windows XP on, as that hard drive has all of my other data on it. I have taken most file permisions over on Windows 7 so I can access the data.

Every so often I need to use windows xp but I cannot access all of my data because windows 7 has the file permissions.

Is there a way to add file permisions for users on both OS's?

our office has 2 branches recently the static ip of the branch was changed to a different subnet. earlier it used to be

111.170.150.140 subnet mask (255.255.255.128) main branch router (1) ip which forwards all request to server (dmz) - unchanged

111.170.150.141 subnet mask 255.255.255.128 sub branch (2) router ip changed to 111.170.150.61 subnet mask 255.255.255.224

after this change i am not able to access shared folders on the dmz server (1) (111.170.150.140).
i am able to ping the ip and also able to open remote desktop connections from sub branch (2).

i suspect that it is because of subnet change as i was earlier able to access shared folders

How can we access the shared folders across the subnet? what settings to change? kindly help

Is there a way to share folders to other computers on the network that do not have user accounts on the computer where the share is located? The public folder is visible from other computers but when I share another folder the other computers on the network can see the share but cant access it. I know that there must be a solution to this problem but I'm starting to lose my hair with all my head scratching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have now discovered via the forum that I have to enable the guest account and change the permissions to give methe access I required. Thanks again to this fantastic site. I'd be lost without it!

Hi,

I'm on a home network. Its all been configured. My firewall has been configured. Just wondering how to put files in the public folder. I understand you can just copy files in there but i dont want to because it'll take up space. Is there a way to make individual files or folders share themselves into the public folders without duplicating themselves from the original to save space? Because i dont want two from the same file, ie one in the public folder and the other in the original folder.

Also, i use vista and my other network computers are on xp. I noticed on one of them, i can give it files and but i cannot take files from it onto my computer. I understand it must be a sharing setting on that computer but im not sure where to go to fix it since its xp and im a vista person now. If someone could assist me in those two issues would be greatly appreciated.

I have Windows 10 installed on my PC and i am coming from windows XP. On windows xp i was able to setup folders as shared folders that did not require a password or any other authentication. This allowed me to share folders via my kodi (android tv box). I am having nothing but trouble attempting to share on windows 10.

I do not want a password or any authentication. I just want to be able to access my \\ipaddress\ files without any other prompts.

Currently i see the folders that i have shared but i can not access the folders. It still asks for a password and username.

In the network and sharing center i have public networking sharing on and password protection off.

A:File/folder Sharing

Hi Yorkie,I don't have that much experience in networking over the internet. But there are a couple of things you can explore. As long as you have good security on each pc and a safe service for the network you will be fine.FTP:The simplest option if you want to just share files. Just get some space and upload your folders.Pros: Access files anytime, anywhere even when your PCs are off.Cons: To modify a file you must download it, modify and upload it again.Search HereVNC:This is a remote PC to PC connection over the internet. You can see the other PCs desktop and work just like you were sitting at it. VNC services hereVPN:I have never use a VPN and I'm not to sure how they work, but its worth suggesting!One Service I have just remebered relevant to FTP is www.box.net a great free service for internet file sharing they have added many new features since I last used it - so got check it out!Hope that helps!Tomo

I am running Win XP Pro SP2. Was running simple file sharing for months without problem.
My laptop and desktop and my cousin's desktop are linked by a router. Normally i just share a folder, for example "Data" in my laptop then from my desktop, I just need to type //192.168.1.100 and i can see the Data folder.

However, since yesterday, when i do that, I get prompted that

\\192.168.1.100 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator to find out if you have acess permissions.

However, when I type \\192.168.1.100\Data, I can access it and see the content of the folder.

The same is happening when I try to access my Desktop from my laptop. The weirdest thing is my laptop and desktop can access my cousin's desktop without any problem, just type in the IP and I can see the share folders.

I tried searching the net, but no suck problem has been reported. Please advice.

Hi guys

Im trying to share the folder of one computer with another computer on a local network, however the second computer has had issues accessing the folder on the first computer.

"Share this folder on the network" has been clicked and "Allow network
users to change my files" has been clicked as well

I have tried to remedy the problem using the following approaches

- Re-setting the aforementioned folder settings
- Rebooting the first computer
- Rebooting the second computer
- Plugging the first computer's network connection into another port
on the network router
- Plugging the second computer's network connection into another port
on the network router

None of these have solved the issue at all

what could be the problem?

A:network folder sharing

What Operating Systems are on each computer? (eg Windows XP Pro or Home? Or Windows 7 or 8? Are you using Simple File Sharing?
Make sure each computer has a user name and password associated with it and you do not login without a password.
On the computer you want to share, find the computer name of the computer.
On the remote computer go to Start/Run (XP, Search in later versions) and type the computer name of the computer you are trying to access, (eg) \\ComputerName and press enter. If the file is shared on the other computer, it should show the computer with the shared file and/or printers. If you cannot access this computer, then turn Simple File Sharing Off.

Thoroughly confused by how to configure sharing in Win 7. But somehow the homegroup works, and I can share my movies folder from my desktop with my laptop through a wired router. Clever eh?

But I can't delete a now deleted folder from a drive that no longer exists. There's no way to delete the folder from the homegroup menu, and it's totally not obvious how to organise the shared folders. I can't go to the original folder and click 'share with nobody' because it doesn't exist anymore cos I've got rid of the drive.

So how the hec do I stop that empty folder showing up in my share? Why can't it make more sense?

I have a new Win7 x64 laptop connected to my home network (HomeGroup). My Win7 x64 desktop PC can see the laptop's filesystem and vice-versa. I've shared the MyDocuments folder on the laptop with everybody (no passwords, full control, made it as promiscuous as I can). I can drag a file from that folder to the desktop PC, but whenever I try to drag anything from the desktop PC to the laptop I'm told, "Destination folder access denied" and "You need permission to perform this action." Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I know this has been covered many times around here, but none of the threads I've read seem to help. Thanks loads.

A:Folder sharing trouble

You need to make sure your permissions are right. You might have set them for everyone but you didn't specify which permissions you gave them.

NTFS and share permissions systems are completely separate from each other, to access files on a shared NTFS drive they user must have the correct NTFS and the correct share permissions.

Always remember the least invasive permissions will be used

From what I've seen in forums, this seems realistic but I'm getting something wrong and am going around in circles at this point. Help Please!!!

PC #2) A desktop running Windows XP

The two are connected with a crossover cable and everything is mostly working. The issue I am having is sharing a certain directory on PC#1's c:/ drive. I did the following:

1) Unshared the c:/ drive to reset everything
2) Shared the c:/ drive (top level)
3) The c:/ drive appears as shared on PC#2. There are two user directories in c:/users ----- 'public access', and 'myname'. I can access the 'public access' directory, but not the 'myname' directory.

I have shared the 'myname' directory directly, and it appears on PC #2. I have also set permissions as follows: Right click 'myname', Sharing, Advanced sharing, Permissions, Total control for all.

Still no luck, though.

On my home network there are W8-A, W8-B and W7 machines. There is no problem networking among these machines except from W8-A to W7. The shared folders on the W7 are displayed on W8-A but if I attempt to click-open any one of them no ID/PW is asked for and the following message is displayed:

"You do not have permission to access . . . . . Contact your network administrator . . . "

W8-A <--> W8-B OK
W8-B <--> W7 OK
W8-A <-- W7 OK
W8-A --> W7 NG

W8-B and W7 are logged in by the same ID and password, but W8-A is logged in by a different ID and PW.
I can open any folder of the W7 from W8-A *if* W8-A is logged in by the same ID and PW as for W7/W8-B.

I wonder what could be wrong. Any idea?

A:File and folder sharing

Are you certain that the C:>Users folder on the W7 machine is shared? Also make sure that the time/date are set the same on all machines as this will cause access problems.

Setting up a Homegroup between these machines would most likely eliminate all file access problems without the requirement to use the same User name and password.

I can see more options under file/folder
sharing, however I still cannot duplicate what I was able to do in W2K...

My scenario is like this (this is a peer-to-peer Network, all PCs are P4
running Win/XPP)
1. PC1 is acting as a Server, Computer name is PC1, User Name is Staff1.
This is somewhat acting as Administrator.
2. Within this PC , I created 3 user accounts (Staff1, Staff2, Staff3)
3. Under C Drive, I created 3 Folders (also called Staff1, Staff2, Staff3)
** User Staff1 will logon to PC1 as Staff1 all the time.
I then right click on folder Staff2, make it a shared folder, then apply
permission. I would remove 'Everyone' and only add Staff2 as the user.....
I do the same under the Security tab....

4. The other two computers: PC2 to be logged on by Staff2, PC3 to be logged
on by Staff3.
5. My plan is : Staff2 will only have access rights to Folder Staff2 in PC1
computer, and cannot access Staff3 folder. Same apply to Staff3 (only access
to folder Staff3 and not Staff2)

The above scheme works GREAT in Windows2000 Professional.

Now, even I follow the exact same path but I just cannot make it to work in
WinXPP.
Every time when Staff2 at PC2 try to map or open the Staff2 folder via the
Network, system would say \\PC1\Staff2 is not accessible, you might not have
permission to use this network resource......

I would appreciate if you could tell me what did I miss... it must be
something in XPP I don't understand!

Thank you very much in advance.

I think i've tried every solution I could find, but I would like you to prove me wrong. Here's the situation:
On the network, there is 1 wireless vista laptop, 1 wireless seven laptop, my wireless seven laptop, 1 xp netbook, 1 wireless media hub with an attached drive, and 1 wireless printer.

The other win7 laptop can be accessed by the other computer but not by mine and can access the other computer,but not mine. My guess is that I somehow played with settings I shouldn't had.

Here's what works or not for mine. No one can access me and I can't access anyone. The wired xp computer cannot see my shared folders, but can see the computer when I go on network/all network/microsoft windows network/mshome (or something like that, I have a french computer). The other windows 7 laptop can see me but not access files. I can see it too but not access the files. But the wired xp can access the files on the other 7. I can access the printer without any problem. Also,every media device shows on the list(the hub and shared libraries of the other 7 computer).

Now for my computer settings: Network is set at home with the following settings`: network discovery on, file and printer sharing at on, public folder at on, media streaming on, enabled 40 or 56-bit encryption, password protected off and allow homegroup managed by windows.

We all are on the mshome workgroup.

I want to set up (advanced) file and folder sharing between my laptop and my PC via a wireless connection.

I'm trying to set up my boss's computer with a folder on her C: drive for her scans from our office copier. Her laptop is part of our network. Our servers run Server 2003 R2. Her laptop is new and is a 64-bit Windows 7 pro. When I try to set up the sharing it gets hung up and says Sharing Files (with the green progress bar going and me being alerted that it may take a few minutes). Then it just says at the top after a long while that it's not responding. If I wait it out it then says that the folder is shared but when I try to do things like view its properties it just starts to not respond again.

Is it a compatibility issue with Server 2003 and Windows 7 or possible a problem with her computer?

One of my clients just decided to replace two XP machines with two Vista machines. Didn't bother to ask about issues that might arise. The most serious is that one machine acts as file server to three others. Without getting into the problems of adding user accounts and making them match, the only way I found to make the data easily available was to put it in c:\users\public\documents. That works, but I would really prefer to fully control things. If anyones knows how to make ANY folder this public, I'd like to know.

In the process of trying things, I got c:\users shared. Now I cannot see a way to UN share it. What am I missing? Actually, I had tried to share c:\users\username\documents. That is when users got shared. I don't understand the logic.

Hi,

I have 3 PCs at my home (call them A, B & C). A is running XP Pro SP2 on an NTFS disk. B & C are running XP Home SP2. All can see each other fine thru our wifi network and all can get onto the internet fine thru our DSL router (NAT). On A, simple file sharing is turned OFF.

I've got a folder on A that I want B to have access to, but not C. On B there is a user called Mary. I tried reproducing Mary's user account onto A (same name, password, account type). Then I went to the folder on A and set the permissions so only Mary could access the folder. Then I went to B, logged in as Mary and tried to access the folder on A but it said "permission denied".

How do I set permissions on a folder on A using XP Pro SP2 so that a user on B can access the folder on A, but not any users on C?

In the series of permission screens, I tried to locate B & C, but it was only showing me A. How do I get B & C to appear so I can select a user on B as having access rights to the folder on A?

From A permissions locations, I tried typing in \\B\username , but no luck.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

A:Sharing folder with other User

Hello Chris,

You might check using the tutorial below to see if you may have missed setting the permission settings for her user account on the folder.

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...rmissions.html

Another option would be to place the files you would like to share in the C:\Users\Public\Public Pictures folder. By default, all users have access to the Public folders. The Public folders are also included in the libraries by default as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I am trying to share a folder from (server 1) on (domain 1) to another computer linked to (server 2) on (domain 2). I have taken the following steps and can't get past the last one:
Explorer
Network
(server 1)

Here it won't show the files available to be shared on (server 1) until I put in a password. I have credentials to log in to that server to get access but I don't know how to type the username and password. I have tried [email protected] (which worked on a windows xp) & just the username and password, but it doesn't allow me through. so my question is:

How do you type the username and password when trying to share a folder on a different domain.

Thanks in advance!

A:Sharing a folder on a different domain

From a computer on DOMAINONE\user would log into the other computer as DOMAINTWO\username. Username would be a user on DOMAINTWO that has access to the files you want to share.

\\computername.domaintwo\sharename

username: DOMAINTWO\username
password: the specified users pass

Evening all,

Just looking for some advice regarding the public folder in windows. I have windows 7 on my desktop which is wired to my router and my laptop running vista wireless and on both machines i deleted the public folders in the users folder as i never had any intention of sharing anything. I did this a while ago now so there is no way of restoring it via a system restore. My main question is im looking to share some music files between my laptop and desktop with the files being on the desktop machine, could i create just another basic folder and share it that way? if so how would i go about doing it?

Im kinda new to the whole sharing thing so any help would be much appreciated

many thanks

A:Public sharing folder help

I assume you already have your computers in the same Homegroup. If so, you should be able to right click the folder you want to share, go to "Share with" in the context menu, and should be able to select either Read or Read/Write.

Hi guys

Just to get it out of the way, I have already searched the forum for help (and the web),
and I already found a thread in here explaining what to do
write techspot.com in front of /vb/all/windows/t-5750-Access-denied-to-a-folder-merged-with-Partition-Magic.html
(i can't post links because i'm new here)

But, I can't find the freakin' security settings in Partition Magic

I've been looking through them all "general, view, disk, tools and so on"
but anything saying security I cannot find.
Is it me or my partition magic that retarded :-S

I have to admit it's a craked version, but it didn't complain about anything when I typed the serial just -
"thanks for using partition magic and so on"

When I try to access the merged folder this is what comes up
F:\g is not accessible. Access denied.
The same thing a unformattede harddrive would say.
So is it still a security thing?
Or is it my partion magic that needs changing?

Please forgive my newbi-ways

p.s
i'm using XP home edition (from dell) if that helps
 

A:Folder problem with Partition Magic, can't open merged files/folder.

Hi
Although your issue may be easily resolved

TechSpot cannot help with cracked software - as the cracked software may be faulty itself.
Let alone the legal issues

Hello I hope you can help, you have before and that was great!

I have had no problems since you last helped me but I ran a Spyware Doctor scan and found around 30,000 .exe files that were obviously some kind of trojan. I tracked them down and found them in the System Volume Information folder where I the system restore points get filed. I went into safe mode, activated permissions to get into the folder and deleted all of the files. This worked for a while then they just reapeared again!

I found somewhere that someone said to just deactivated the system restore service which again worked but hasn't corrected the problem.

I have just run another scan and it again has found over 30,000 files (around 2gb of data) in the RECYCLER folder (which I understand in the deleted files area).

Can you help me firstly get rid of them and help me find what ever it is that is causing these problems and get rid of that forever!

I really rely upon and need my laptop for work and this is seriously slowing things down.

Can someone help?!

I accidentally deleted my RECIPE FOLDER containing several categories of recipes with several files in each folder. I could not find my deleted files in MY Recycle Bin so I recovered my RECIPE FOLDER by restoring my system to an earlier date. Now that I have recovered My RECIPE FOLDER, all my files are now script and cannot be read. These are recipes that I have been collecting for over 8 years. It's a treasure to me. How do I return these script files to normal. My folder was stored on an HP Pavilion Laptop using Windows 7.
Thanks to any helpers on this forum who can assist me.....Carlyle

All the files exist on a server 2008 R2 NAS shared folder. Our users can copy files from a zipped folder to another non-zipped without issue on their XP workstations.  On the new Windows 7 workstations, neither copy/paste, ctrl+c/ctrl+v, nor
drag and drop move all the selected files to the destination.  The progress popup shows progress and then just disappears without event  nor error.  The destination folder will contain some of the selected files but seldom all.    I
have been able to recreate the problem and have applied several TN posted solutions but the issue remains.  Has this been seen by anyone else?  I am not interested any third party apps or complicated workarounds being my end users are not technical.

I've just started using my new desktop pc which I bought specifically to download stuff from the internet and to my horror it wants to save everything in my temp internet files folder. Does anyone know how to change this please? I've tried messing about with the security settings but that didn't solve it. I've seen a few threads on here but have yet to find an answer.

Now wishing I'd stuck with my old pc on XP!!!

Thanks

Hi,

I am running IE8 on Windows 7 (Home Premium 64bit). My Temporary Internet Files folder is C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5. I have enabled Show Hidden Files and Folders and removed the tick for Hide Protected Operating System files.

I've noticed that streamed .wma file appeared as .dat file in the temporary internet folder. I've tried copying it to the desktop and changed the extension to .wma but it will not play at all. I have the same problem in another laptop running Windows Vista. In Windows XP platform, I have no problem retrieving the streamed files as they are saved in the original file format (i.e. .mp3 or .wma) in the Temporary Internet Files folder.

Please advise.

Thank you & regards

I'm have difficulty understanding the real problem since I have always set my browsers to delete at the end of a session, I use CCleaner to delete junk (read stuff in the temp folder).

In any case, you can help us by updating your system specs.

User CP (3rd item in the top menu bar) |

Sharing + security properties of a particular folder,

I couldn?t figure out the difference between sharing a particular folder and granting security control on it. Are these two options doing the same kind of work (attached)?

What might be the critical difference between sharing a folder and granting security control on it?

Thank you very much

Best

Jamal

A:Sharing + security properties of a particular folder,

When you share a folder or drive you give people on computers other than which the share is located access to objects within that folder or drive.

Share permissions determine what a user can do with the SHARE itself. Granting full control to a share is generally not recommended. A general rule of thumb is that you grant only the permissions required for the access needed and no more.

The security permissions determine what a user can do with oibjects WITHIN the share. Again, you would generally not grant full control, as this allows the user to take ownership, delete everything, and change permissions and could even lock everyone else out of access to the objects within that share.

I have a server with 15TB of storage. On it we have our personal folders. They are centralised for backup and purposes. The shares are called Tanya, Peyton, Trent and Public. Each share has a permission of CHANGE.

The security for these shares are set to allow access only to the person whose folder it is. Eg Peyton has Modify rights to his folder, but no one else can access it, except the administrator, and only from the server. The public folder has USERS(modify), so that we can all acess stuff in that folder.

So, SHARE permissions determine what can be done with a SHARE, and security permissions determine what can be done with files, folders, and other objects that are stored ON THAT SHARE.

Hi,

I have a home network consisting of several machines, all running Windows 7. I want to share a folder located on one machine, called PC1, with another machine called PC2. All other machines on the network are not to have access to this folder.

On PC1, I created a non-admin user account with the same login and password credentials as the admin user for PC2. I then right clicked the folder I want to share on PC1 and went into advanced sharing and added this user to both the Sharing and Security tabs and provided full control permission. I also removed the Everyone group from both tabs, since I only want PC2 to access this folder.

With this setup, I am able to see the shared folder in Networks when on PC2 but I get an error saying access denied if I try to open it. Not sure why I'm getting this error since I added the user and provided access rights.

I have noticed that if I go to PC1 and add the Everyone group back in, I'm able to access the folder without any errors. But this defeats the purpose of providing access to only one machine. If anyone has suggestions, I would like to hear them.

Thanks.

There is a way to do this but it's required that you return the file access permissions to their default settings, add the Everyone share back in. Setting shares up like you are doing will only work when all User accounts are on the same machine.
