Hello! I can't share files between my laptop and my desktop PC, but I can open and share files with an old computer with XP on the same network. I tried all that I can think off, troubleshooting network, trying homegroups, re installing Windows, router, share settings, I did a couple of fixes from forums but nothing works. On my laptop I shared a whole partition STORAGE. but if I want to open it from my desktop PC I get this -> "Windows cannot access \\Inspiron\Storage. You don't have permission to access \\Inspiron\Storage. Contact your network administrator to request access." The only thing I can open from my PC from Laptop is the public share folders. I also tried opening the STORAGE partition, which is set to shared on laptop, from the computer with Win XP - it got a similar error message as with Win 7. All computers on network are in the same workgroup; I have all the same hardware settings as I did with Windows Vista, where I didn't have no problem with network. Please help me! EDIT: I use Windows 7 build 7600 from Microsoft E-Academy.
