Hi, Can anyone help please, i'm currently looking for a pistol to put to my head!!! I cant map network drives between my Windows vista business and Windows 7 ultimate machines. They will both see each other in the netork map in explorer but when i try to map them i get an access denied message. It seems to be a permissions issue. Both machines have the same workgroup name, the W7 machine is not in a homegroup and i have checked that the network discovery and file sharing options are turned on in advanced sharing settings in the network and sharing centre. Password protected sharing is turned off but both pc's log on with the same password anyway (different usernames though). Does anyone know how to rectify this please. Thanks ion advance.
