Looking for How Folders are Shared

May 22, 2016 at 15:50:28
Specs: Windows Vista
I have two users on my Vista desktop. I have then my W10 laptop. On my desktop I have shared, as "everyone" so my laptop has full access to the external drives. I have issues accessing C folders but that for another day I guess. I made a second user on the desktop which I do not want to have access to certain folders on C or the externals. Now I cannot find the shares anymore, even in COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, but the user has no access to one external drive (which as far as I find is set for "everyone" on FULL), but full access to the other one, also with "everyone." I can not find how this user has full access to it when I only wanted one or two subfolders to be accessible, not the whole drive. As well I can not find how the user is blocked from the second external, when only "everyone" is there. The laptop, via WIFI, still needs full access to everything (which it does). The other problem is, Vista will not see the laptop user if I wanted to try making permissions per individual user.
What I want to do is:
> Find where and how my second desktop user has/not has permissions and fix them to:
>> Make sure I know how external 1 is blocked
>> Give access only to certain subfolders on external 2 where currently the whole drive is accessible.
Any ideas be great. Thank you.

I reply as fast as I can, but it could be hours or months.

On the master computer, right-click on drive or folder & choose "Properties".

Click the "Security" tab.

Review & edit permissions as necessary.

I mentioned how that has not worked. I give one subfolder access to use and the whole drive is then opened. Along with that, it does not see the account on the laptop. So I can not make LAPTOP access everything and LOCALUSER2 to some.
