I'm having a problem that I think has developed in the last couple of months. I have two computers; a Windows 10 that's acting as a media server, sort of, and a Windows 8 that accesses the files on the first one.
My problem is that I'm unable to make changes to files on two of my three data drives on the Windows 10 box from the Windows 8 box; no renaming, no moving files to the Win10, no deleting...nothing. Every time I try, it gives me the message that I'll need to provide administator permission. To the best of my recollection, this was working a few months ago.
Networking for both is set to allow network discovery, require passwords is set to off, they're both on the same homegroup (which I'm not using, I don't think). Both the data drives on the "server" are shared at the root; on each, there is a main folder that is also shared, with read/write access for Everyone.
What am I missing here?
Thanks in advance,
