    Trying to access files from a SATA laptop drive Win 7 on a desktop computer Win 10. All system files and program files are viewable, but not the contents of the Desktop Folders. The directory for the hard drive appears to include all of the data on the drive. But when I go to Windows_7 OS > Users >, I get the following 4 folders: Administrator, Default grayed out, Patrick Admin, and Public. Clicking on the Administrator folder, I get a list of folders. The App Data folder and the Desktop folder are grayed out, The Desktop folder has 3 random files and 1 random folder listed

    Unable to view files on Desktop on Win 10 computer with Win 7 computer

    I am trying to move a file from the desktop of my Win 7 computer to that of the Win 10 computer. I find the Win 10 desktop with User => me => Desktop, but only a couple of files appear, and I cannot paste the one I want to move.

    Cannot Access Win 10 Laptop from Win 7 Desktop

    Samuria, as I noted above NTFS permissions are set to everyone, full control at the share and the security levels. Normally I would map a network drive on the desktop as a way to access the shared folder on the laptop. Mapping the shared folder to a network drive on the win 10 laptop does not accomplish anything. The win 7 desktop is unable to access anything on the win 10 laptop.

    Cannot Access Win 10 Laptop from Win 7 Desktop

    Win 7 desktop is hardwired to Linksys ea8300 router and Win 10 laptop is connected via wifi. The Win 10 laptop can see the Win 7 desktop and its shares and connect to them. The win 7 desktop can see the win 10 tablet in the network but any attempt to access the laptop (dell-tablet) generates a permissions error (see below). This was working and I don't know what changed.

    Win 10 tablet does not require any logon. Shares grant full permissions to everyone at the share and the security level. Win 7 desktop is a member of a homegroup and network discovery and file sharing are turned on for the home network. Of course, homegroup is no longer part of Win 10. Tablet is a private network and network discovery and file sharing is turned on for the private network. Both pcs are in a workgroup called Home. Function Discovery Provider Host & Function Discovery Resource Publication are both running on the win 10 tablet.

    After getting the access problem, I cannot find any logged events on the tablet rejecting the access. I am at a loss especially since this was working.

    Anyone have any ideas what is going on?

    Thanks, David
