I just networked 2 computers through a router and both computers seem to be networking nicely except for one problem. I have my main computer, called upstairs and the other one is called downstairs. I want to be able to have FULL access to the downstairs computer from my upstairs computer. I do not want any access to my upstairs computer from my downstairs computer except for the shared documents. I can access pretty much everything on the downstairs computer except for the \\Downstairs\C\Documents and Settings\Scott. Scott, which is me, is set up as the adminastrator for the down stairs computer. When I try to access \\Downstairs\C\Documents and Settings\Scott usually through the my computer program it gives me this message: \\Downstairs\C\Documents and Settings\Scott is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the adminastrator of this server to find out if you have permission. Any help would greatly be appreciated!!

It's supposed to do that. The settings in that folder are crucial to the working of that user account on that computer.

Therefore messing with the permissions for it will probably break the account and render it unusable.

You'll see similiar effects with Program Files and the Windows folder.

If you want access to the individual folders inside Docs & Settings\Scott, share the individual folders inside it.

Thanks so much for the reply! I will look at making the folders I want to access shared.

Thanks again!
