    Problem with sharing after MS help


    I wonder if anyone can help with this ? I had a issue with MS Office which Microsoft sorted for me. They promised no files or settings would be altered but I find later that my XP machine can no longer see or share files with Win 10. (But the other way round is still ok). The folders can be seen in XP but Explorer brings up an error. Because XP was not touched I assume the trouble is with Win10. Version 21H1 (08 Build 19043.1052) Any help sorting this much appreciated.

    :)

  2. Cannot access shared network drive


    I could scream! so much time wasted on this stupid error, as if time is not precious enough!
    It probably would work fine if I could see the other computer! But I cannot see the other computer!

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
