I was able to share and access shared folders over LAN in my hostel 1wk back. But now suddelny i cant seem to share or acces those folders anymore... Pls help... Ive been using the same antivirus since 2 yrs back.. I did not install any new applications..
Ensure Simple File Sharing is enabled (My Computer > Tools > Folder Options > 'View' Tab > end of the list) in both the computer you are using and the computer you plan to share with. Navigate to the folders that are to be shared and right click > Sharing and Security > enable sharing of the particular file/folder.
Make sure you can ping that PC that shares folder, if not something is blocking or there is network problem. You can type \\<other-PC-IP> in address bar of IE or file explorer in order to access other PC.
