    Network Problems

    This might not be the forum to ask this question but there's a lot of smart people here so here we go.

    I have a laptop and a desktop networked.

    Recently i bought a seagate 1 tb drive and added all my photo's on there, i've sorted the lot and now i'm sharing this drive with the laptop....

    What i want to do is share the entire drive in full but restrict the photo folder.

    so laptop user can add files on the entire drive but is not allowed to change files or folder structure of the PHOTO folder.

    At the moment i can view everything on the seagate, but i am not allowed to create files or folders anywhere.....is there something that i'm missing ??? I have set permissions for
    USERS
    ROOF
    NETWORK CONFIGURATION OPERATORS
    NETWORK
    GUEST
    GUESTS
    EVERYONE
    ADMINISTRATOR
    ADMINISTRATORS

    all set to full control of the entire drive


    on the photo folder i have the same list but only READ to Network/guests/everyone

    I can't figur it out...please help

    cheers

    Assuming Windows and home network. At some point the user on one system must be recognised on the other.

    a) Make sure you create a user on both systems, that user is admin on their own box and just a regular user on the 'server' box - set the passwords the same

    b) make sure both boxes are in the same workgroup - I use 'WORKGROUP' at home

    c) Then grant that user the access you want on the 'server' box, i.e. write access to limited folders

    Should be good to go. Should work for both XP and Vista. Works for me.

    Thanks Kym...

    I don't have network problems A can See B and acces, It's that i don't want A to mess up my folder structure in J:\PHOTO or change any files, On the other parts of the hdd they can do what they want....

    So would i be better to grant RESTRICTED acces first on the J:\PHOTO folder and then allow FULL acces on entire drive....

    That's the only thing that i can't seem to work out...

    and yes it's XP Pro corp to Vista
