    I've networked two Win 7 computers, A (tower desktop) and B (laptop). From B, I can create new folders and do anything I want on A, But on A I can't create new folders on B ("You need permission to perform this action"). This is preventing some needed software from running correctly.

    - From A looking at properties on B, and also on B looking at properties on A, Advanced Security Settings/Permissions shows all users having "Full control".

    - The Owner user is also included as a user in Advanced Security Settings/Permissions for both A looking at properties on B and B looking at properties on A.

    You can probably tell that I'm far from expert at networking.

    Any ideas for me to try?

    • plug the laptop into the network with a cable instead of wifi... does that resolve the issue?
    • are both computers on the same; workgroup, homegroup and domain?
