Hi, I am on a hame net work and on of the other people on it have there C drive shared but when I click on it and try to open some folders like documents and settings and windows it will not let me do so. Can I break this protection down so I don't have to go to the computer every time I want to do something to it (I would be the person that knows the most about computers in the house so I need to do it sometimes) if you would rather the slution of this not posted in the foram just PM. Many thanks for any help.

Windows XP protects certain folders like the ones you are having trouble accessing. You should, however, be able to create additional shares that are either the folders like "Documents and Settings" itself, or other folders nested therein (like profiles), and gain access that way.

Thanks for the answer, I wish that Windows did not portect them, If a person shares a drive every thing in it shoud be acessable.
