  1. Network Sharing - Unable to share the files on my pc with others on the network


    Hello,


    I am trying to set up my PC for file sharing across the network at my work. I have changed all of my settings to allow network sharing but whenever someone else tries to access it says access denied I have allowed permissions to everyone while trying to set it up and it still does not work. Does anyone have any other suggestions on how I could get this to work? Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    :)
