Question Why can't I access my other networked PC's USERS directories?

sponsored links

Hi there. I have recently networked my WINXP Pro system with my brothers WINXP Home system, through a belkin router. We can share printers, files, internet ect, but at the monent we can't share eachothers USERS + Windows directories. My computer has 4 users setup on it, each passworded, and say for instance my brother wants to access my "BEN" username directory, he can't. It says "access not allowed", and vice-versa.

I've right-clicked on the directory and selected "share with network" (or similar) but the problem is still there.

Can anyone help?

Its probably an underlying feature in xp, that you can't share username directories (i take it you mean "ben's documents").

The simple way is to move the files you need into "shared documents" and then share that. or another folder and share that.

Apart from that i am not sure.
