I have two computers on a network, I am able to share "my shared documents" on both computers. I used to be able to get into my documents but something has gone wrong and I no longer can. Can someone please explain how I can configure the computer to access my documents on another computer.

Go to "My Computer" and open the Local Disk (usually C:\), now open "Documents and Settings", "The username you are using", and right click on "My Documents". Click "Properties" and select the "Sharing" tab at the top of the window. Select the option "Share this Folder" and create a share name for it. Do the same on the other computer. Now if you want it to be in "Network Places" also, then open up "My Network Places" and select "Add Network Place". Now just go through the wizard and at the proper time browse to the folder you just shared on the other machine and select it and now you will have a new network place.
