Well. Ain't so. I googled, too, and didn't find fuck. (I'm a little pissed off, and am in the mood to smash shit, so I ain't got no patience right now.)
So. My main rig is Win7, and the target PC is also Win7. (I can access one of my still-existing XP machines without hitch....)
On the target PC, I checked 'on' in everything, and password off, in both home and public. I can see the target PC, click on it, and see the folders available - Documents, Pictures, Music, etc - But....clicking on those gives me a box saying they ain't accessible. Huhn?
So, do you have an idea on this?
