I recently tried to share some files between my home computer and my work laptop. It didn't work out correctly, so I turned file sharing back off again. However, then it turned out I couldn't access the files I had tried to share even on the original computer. I turned file sharing back on again, and I could access most of the files, but a few directories could not be accessed. (I have used junction to create some hardlinks in the affected folder, but not all of the directories with which I'm having problems are hardlinked to others, and not all hardlinked directories are having problem.)

The files are on my local hard drive, not a desktop drive. Why do I get an `Access Denied' error? What can I do? Thank you.
