Question about Toshiba Satellite 1115-S103 Notebook
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
