Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.799 GHz / 2038 MB
Two XP systems on a workgroup. They see each other. Over time a problem cropped up. Earlier, if I shared a folder from computer #2, computer #1 could open, browse, edit folders + content. Now, every time I share a folder on computer #2, computer #1 gets the message, "[share name] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Older shares from computer #2 remain accessible on computer #1.

Anyone experienced this?

when you compared the contents of the security tab on both a working and nonworking share were they exactly the same?

No...the one that is missing on the non-accessible folder is "Everyone." How do I add "Everyone" if that is the problem?

go to the security tab and add "everyone" then check full control.

Thanks. It worked! I wonder why I have to add "Everyone" individually to these newer shares. I never had to before. At any rate, this will get me where I need to be.
