This is administrative share which is enable by default. If you want to disable it, you have to configure some setting in Registry. (Only do it if you are advance user).
1) Click Start , then Run, type in 'Regedit' .

Expand My Computer -- > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SYSTEM --> CurrentControlSet --> Services --> lanmanserver --> parameters
In the right panel, look for AutoShareWks, right click on it and change the value to '0' to disable the share.
** In case you want to enable the share back, change the value to 1.

Hi, I have two pc running with windows xp operating system. From User 1 i need to access user 2 windows folder and program files folder otherway around also but I can't how? Even if I shared windows folder...


First thing Windows XP Home Edition will give you numerous problems when sharing files, you should consider using windows XP Pro for that sort of operations.

Assuming you have Windows XP Pro installed in both computers:

1 - Create the same user on both computers ( same account name, same password ) blank passwords are not allow between file sharing as per windows xp group policy.

2 - Create a resource to share ( example: C:\)

3 - Disable simple file sharing

* go to control panel
* click on folder options
* click the VIEW tab
* unckeck the use sharing wizard

4 - Make sure that the user that will be used for authenticating between computers have the proper NTFS permissions and the proper access to the shared sources.

5 - Try to connect to the shared sources when asked for username and password type the credentials of the newly created user.

Now you should be able to connect to the shared sources both ways.

I backed up my windows XP drive to an Iomega usb drive. I can read the usb drive on that machine and on a Fedora Linux machine, but, NOT on other Windows machines. It won't display the directories/files,...


This is probably due to user restrictions. linux is having no problem, but only the user in windows that created the files can view them.... unless you can change the sharing properties.
right click on the files/folders properties / sharing / advanced sharing, and enable sharing

Network access denied


Follow the steps to Sharing the files

Your computers are already connected to a network — i.e., they’re all already able to browse the Internet using the same router..

1 : Open the Network and Sharing Center window by clicking on the Windows orb in the lower left corner, and then either right-clicking on Network and selecting “Properties”, or opening the Control Panel and double-clicking “Network and Sharing Center.
2 : If your network type is “Public,” you need to change it to “Private”:
  1. To the right of the network name and location type, click Customize.
  2. In the Set Network Location dialog box, click Private, and then click Next.
  3. In the Successfully set network settings dialog box, click Close.
3 : Under “Sharing and Discovery” in the bottom half of the Network and Sharing Center window, you need to turn all the settings from “Off” to “On” by clicking on the down arrow next to each setting, clicking on “Turn on …”, and clicking on “Apply.” But see some pointers below:
  1. For the “Password protected sharing” setting: you may want to leave this “On” or turn “Off” at your discretion. (I turned mine off.)
  2. For the “Public folder sharing” setting:
    1. If you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files, but not create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open files. This is the default setting.
    2. But if you want to share the public folder so that other computers on the network can access the Public share to open files and also create or change files, click Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can open, change, and create files.
4 : You’re done with the Network and Sharing Center window. Close it via the “X” button.
5 : Click the Windows orb at the lower left corner of your computer, and click on Computer
6 :
n the Computer window, navigate to the folder containing the file(s) or folder(s) that you want to share — e.g., “Pictures” or “Documents” or a specific file or folder within. Note: don’t open the folder itself that you want to share — just navigate to the folder that contains this folder.
7 : Right-click the folder that you want to share, and then click Share. The File Sharing window is displayed. (Click picture for a larger version.)
8 : If you have password protected sharing enabled: Use the File Sharing window to select which users can access the shared folder and their permission level. To allow all users, select Everyone in the list of users. By default, the permission level for a selected user is Reader. Users cannot change files or create new files in the share. To allow a user to change files or folders or create new files or folders, select Co-owner as the permission level.
9 : If you have password protected sharing disabled (like I do): Click the drop-down arrow inside the blank field in the File Sharing window, and select the Guest or Everyone account. Click “Add.” Then for that new account, click on the down arrow under “Permission Level” to change it to Co-owner (if you want anybody to read and modify files) or leave it at “Reader” (if you want other computers to just read but not modify your files).
10 : Click “Share”, then “Done.”


CRITICAL NOTE: If you selected “Everyone” when sharing a folder, you’re also making its contents available to any computer that joins this network. Many households, including mine, have wireless Internet via a wifi router. If you don’t have WEP encryption turned on, then I could just drive up and park on the street near your home, open my laptop, let it join your network via your wifi, and then nose around through your files. It’s particularly important that you have WEP encryption turned on for your wifi network.

Can't print from shared printer


Did you connect the printer directly to the laptop to install the drivers? If so, you need to change the port to the network location to //hostcomputer/printer. You should also have the same user name and password set on both machines and have the user rights assigned to the printer sharing.

File sharing between windows 2000 and XP


1) I believe that Windows XP is not setup for that by default,
you may need to install the old BETBUI service.

2) Also, if the 2000 machine has a login password installed,
it will NOT allow any other machine to browse it, without
logging in.

3) Password-less file sharing over NETBUI was available
on the consumer side of windows:

Windows 3.11 for Work groups
Windows 95, 98 and Millenium.

The professional versions of windows, built on NT
technology require a login:

Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP,
and now Vista.

4) The best work around is to login to the 2000 machine when
it prompts you for a password, using your regular USER ID
and PASSWORD.

If the 2000 machine is not setup with a secure login,
just create a new account, ranking power user or higher.

5) Note that you only need to login over the network ONCE,
because windows XP can REMEMBER your password,
and login automatically the next time.

6) Make sure that the firewall (or A firewall) is not
blocking access to either machine, just disable the
firewalls for testing.

Similarly, if your LAN is behind a residential router, using
the router as a smart hub or switch, make sure that
the routers MAC address access blocking is disabled,
until you get everything setup and tested.

7) Finally if a PC is not visible in a work group, this does not
mean that it is not accessible. This is a Windows quirk.

You can try to access another computer by using the
default/administrative shares. These shares cannot be
disabled in XP, at least they will not stay disabled, as
they will restart during every reboot, whether you like it
or not.

This means that you can ALWAYS access all the drives
on another machine, whether you share them or not, unless
you take extreme measures in the local policies.

To access drive "E:" on a computer called "Henry" on a
machine in the same work-group,

open up windows explorer, and tyr the following into the
address line:

\\Henry\E$

This should access drive E:, after some delay, and possibly
a login prompt, even though drive is is NOT marked as
shared.

Down you just love windows ?!
Security by obscurity ?!
Microsoft is getting very good at hanging massive steel doors
on paper walls.

Hope this solves your problem, or gets around it.

Networking XP and Vista


Since I won't be able to read your response, you can probably try these steps if it concern file sharing between your XP and Vista computer;

-Make sure that both machine have the same Workgroup Name.
-Turn off Firewall on both machine.
-Download the LLTD patch for Windows XP http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=4F01A31D-EE46-481E-BA11-37F485FA34EA&displaylang=en
- Make sure file and printer sharing is enabled for both machines.
- Restart the computer and check if they can now see each other wheb you view entire workgroup.

Hope this will solve your sharing problems.

Wireless network between vista & xp


Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security. To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.

Maxstor shared Storage II 500GB


Try mapping that drive as a network share under windows XP. This is done from "MY Computer" Map network drive. The set up your backups to back up the network drive you have created. If that does not do it then there is a contention between vista and xp as to the owner of the drive. Making the drive a mapped network drive should resolve this as neither should have ownership. Thats my best quess without knowing in detail your network setup.
