Question about Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103 Notebook

1 Answer

No longer can 'sync' my two laptops.

I used to be able to sync a common, shared folder between my two laptops. It was my auto-back up system, if you will. We had some service done and since then it doesn't work. 1) I did a 'ping' and can reach the host (toshiba).
2) I did a "net share' command and the doc$ does not appear. I was told I have to re-share the directory that maps to doc$. I have NO idea what this means or how to do it. I DO see the name of the folder MYFOLDER that is the one I used to be able to sync when both laptops were on the network at the same time, but it does not show up when I did the cmd net-share step. 3) I am assuming that the password, etc will be okay once I am able to see the folder in the net-share. Can you walk me throug the exact steps I need to do #2, above? Thanks a lot. Janet

Try going to cmd with all the laptops connected to your network and try the net view command
do you see the other computers?
try a net start command and then net share and that may be your issue.

otherwise you can simply right click the folder you want to share and click share, if your system recognizes any of the other systems on the network then they will apear in a drop down catalog.

i myself prefer the command prompt:
a "net stop" command followed by "net start", "net share", may reset the setting that is preventing you from sharing

GOOD LUCK and please post any responses from these commands if this is not the solution

Right-click on the folder. This will bring out the context menu.
26319258-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg

26319258-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg

Click on the "Share Privately" button on the left of the Share window. Only people you invite will be able to join this private shared folder.
26319258-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-20.jpg

Choose the recipients. Under the Recipients box, type in the email addresses of all the people you want to share this folder with. These people will need SugarSync accounts in order to join your shared folder.

Add a personal message. There is a text box under "Recipients" where you can add a custom or personal message to welcome them and give them a background of your folder. This is optional though.

Send the invitation. When you're ready, click on the "Send Invitation" button. An email will be sent to your recipients inviting them to join your shared folder. Once your recipients accept the invitation, your shared folder will be created, downloaded, and synced on their computers.

My problem is that I have a laptop hard drive, that's having issues. I can open my files, and I can't open a USB folder to back up the files. What should I do?


Enable "File and Print Sharing" on your Windows system.
Then, "share" your 'My Documents' folder.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to any router.
Take another computer, and another Ethernet cable, to connect this second computer to the same router.
Make sure that both computers are in the same Windows "workgroup".
On the second computer, "browse" the local network.
You should see your laptop computer, and the "shared" folder that it is offering.
Copy everything, over the network, from that folder onto the second computer.
Backup the files to a DVD-recordable disk, or to an external storage-device.

How can i set up network file sharing


First step is to check if the file sharing option is checked in my computer folder options.

Start- My computer- TOOLS - FOLDER OPTIONS- and click on the second tab VIEW- scroll down to the last option which will show as USE SIMPLE FILE SHARING.

Level 1: My Documents (Private) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); The owner of the file or folder has read and write permission to the file or folder. Nobody else may read or write to the folder or the files in it. All subfolders that are contained in a folder that is marked as private remain private unless you change the parent folder permissions.

If you are a Computer Administrator and create a user password for your account by using the User Accounts Control Panel tool, you are prompted to make your files and folder private.

Note The option to make a folder private (Level 1) is available only to a user account in its own My Documents folder.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 1, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Select the Make this Folder Private check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 2 (Default): My Documents (Default) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); The owner of the file or folder and local Computer Administrators have read and write permission to the file or folder. Nobody else may read or write to the folder or the files in it. This is the default setting for all the folders and files in each user's My Documents folder.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 2, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Make sure that both the Make this Folder Private and the Share this folder on the network check boxes are cleared, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 3: Files in shared documents available to local users loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Files are shared with users who log on to the computer locally. Local Computer Administrators can read, write, and delete the files in the Shared Documents folder. Restricted Users can only read the files in the Shared Documents folder. In Windows XP Professional, Power Users may also read, write, or delete any files in the Shared Documents Folder. The Power Users group is available only in Windows XP Professional. Remote users cannot access folders or files at Level 3. To allow remote users to access files, you must share them out on the network (Level 4 or 5).

To configure a file or a folder and all the files in it to Level 3, start Microsoft Windows Explorer, and then copy or move the file or folder to the Shared Documents folder under My Computer.

Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • Power Users: Change
  • Restricted Users: Read
  • System: Full Control
Network Share Permissions:
  • Not Shared
Level 4: Shared on the Network (Read-Only) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); Files are shared for everyone to read on the network. All local users, including the Guest account, can read the files. But they cannot modify the contents. Any user can read and change your files.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 4, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
  2. Click to select the Share this folder on the network check box
  3. Click to clear the Allow network users to change my files check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
  • Everyone: Read
Network Share Permissions:
  • Everyone: Read
Level 5: Shared on the network (Read and Write) loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); This level is the most available and least secure access level. Any user (local or remote) can read, write, change, or delete a file in a folder shared at this access level. We recommend that this level be used only for a closed network that has a firewall configured. All local users including the Guest account can also read and modify the files.

To configure a folder and all the files in it to Level 5, follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the folder, and then click Sharing and Security
  2. Click to select the Share this folder on the network check box, and then click OK.
Local NTFS Permissions:
  • Owner: Full Control
  • Administrators: Full Control
  • System: Full Control
  • Everyone: Change
Network Share Permissions:
  • Everyone: Full Control
Note All NTFS permissions that refer to Everyone include the Guest account.

All the levels that this article describes are mutually exclusive. Private folders (Level 1) cannot be shared unless they are no longer private. Shared folders (Level 4 and 5) cannot be made private until they are unshared.

If you create a folder in the Shared Documents folder (Level 3), share it on the network, and then allow network users to change your files (Level 5), the permissions for Level 5 are effective for the folder, the files in that folder, and the subfolders. The other files and folders in the Shared Documents folder remain configured at Level 3.

Can't Share Files/Folders over home network


That sounds more like the security settings on the pc are not set correctly. Should be nothing to do with the card or the laptop. This is just a windoze thing.

Share a drive or folder on the network To share a drive or folder on the network
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifWindows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share.
  2. Right-click the drive or folder, and then click Sharing and Security.
    • If you are sharing a drive, on the Sharing tab, click If you understand the risk but still want to share the root of the drive, click here.
    • If you are sharing a folder, go to the next step.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • If the Share this folder on the network check box is available, select the check box.
    • If the Share this folder on the network check box is not available, this computer is not on a network. If you would like to set up a home or small office network, click the Network Setup Wizard link and follow the instructions to turn on file sharing. Once file sharing is enabled, begin this procedure again.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
  • When you share a drive or folder, anyone who has user access to the network can read the contents of that drive or folder. If you want to remove the drive or folder from the network, follow steps 1 and 2 above to get to the Sharing tab. On the Sharing tab, in Network sharing and security, clear the Share this folder on the network check box.
  • To allow complete access to the contents of your shared drive or folder, follow steps 1 and 2 above to get to the Sharing tab. On the Sharing tab, in Network sharing and security, select the Allow network users to change my files check box.
  • To change the name of your folder on the network, in the Share name text box, type a new name for your folder. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer.
  • If you are logged on as a guest (a guest account provides access to the computer for any user who does not have a user account on the computer), you cannot create a shared folder.
  • The Sharing option is not available for the Documents and Settings, Program Files, and WINDOWS system folders. In addition, you cannot share folders in other user's profiles.
