TomatoSlayer Posted August 5, 2007 Share Posted August 5, 2007 So I recently reformatted my computer to purge the garbage Windows collects over time. But, I noticed I have a small issue with the network sharing option found under the sharing tab when opening up the properties for certain folders; I can't share them. Yes, I ran the Network Setup Wizard; I, in fact, did it about three times. What's weird is that it works in certain folders, and it does not in others. For example, I can share folders that are in Program Files, but not folders on the desktop. What's also strange is that this wasn't the case before I reformatted; I could share pretty much any folder I desired. The only thing I can think of that I did differently this time around installing Windows is I added another Windows account at install, which I've set as a limited account. My main account is set to Administrator. Oh, I also think that I set it so that users can't access other user's account folders. Are either of these the cause of this? I know I could just move the folders to where Windows would let them be shared, but I just thought I'd ask and see if anyone had a clue as to why it acts differently than it did before I reformatted.
