  1. Folder Used in Past Network Sharing Keeps Reappearing


    So not to long ago I used network sharing to share some files between my desktop and laptop and for some reason a folder I used for this purpose keeps reappearing after deleting it. It'll go the the recycle bin in which I then delete it from there and it'll stay that way for a little bit until it comes back again. I've turned network sharing off completely so I have no idea why it's been doing this. So I turned it back on and looked at the properties of the folder in the sharing tab and it says that this is the location.

    \\DESKTOP-MAXR5UI\Users\\Desktop\Backup

    The weird thing is my entire user folder is in the "network" directory.

    \\DESKTOP-MAXR5UI\Users\

    I have no idea what is going on. It's seriously bugging me.

    :)

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure

    Folders keep reappearing


    The script "64-bit_Remove_All_user_Folders_in_This_PC.reg" has a major bug. The linked folders keep reappearing under This PC. This is what happens:


    1. Quick Access and This PC both contain the Documents folder
    2. The "64-bit_Remove_All_user_Folders_in_This_PC.reg" script is applied
    3. The linked folders disappear from This PC. Everything is fine.
    4. I click the Documents folder under Quick Access, then double click a documents sub folder on the right panel.
    5. The Documents folder reappears under This PC.

    The idea of my setup is to have all common folders pinned under Quick Access, and none under This PC to avoid any duplicates. Is there any way to fix this?
