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 carol.pearson29@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxOn Tuesday, August 19, 2008 6:14 PM (UK time), David W Wood at g3yxx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx said:
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.

(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!
