[access-uk] Re: ACCESSING OTHER COMPUTER ON NETWORK

Thanks Dave.

The mapping of the drive didn't get me there, because they're Windows protected folders. Steve's suggestion that I have to allow my Documents and Settings folder (and I guess those underneath separately) is the way I thought I'd have to go and just wanted to ask before bothering to go through all those steps.

Now I just have to do it.

Carol:

Two ways come to mind.

Firstly, go to the folder which you want to access from the other
machine, and create a shortcut on the desktop of the other machine.

Second way is through Windows Explorer:
Tools
Map network drive
And tab through the options for the drive which you select to use on
the particular machine.

Subject: [access-uk] ACCESSING OTHER COMPUTER ON NETWORK

Hi all,

I have both my desktop and laptop networked and, in the main, things
work well.  (I agreed to share my C drive of both machines because I
knew I'd be the one accessing them.)  My main problem however is
that, even with drive sharing, I am not able to access ... \documents
and settings\my personal folders\favorites etc.  Is there a way I can
achieve this, please without having to move items on either computer
to a mutually accessible folder?

Any help most welcome, thanks!
