    Can see Disk but can not access Drives

    Locked

    by bpbaumberger ·

    I have configured my X61 to share Drives and Files when on the network. When I try to access the X61 from another computer on the network (same user name and same password) I can see the content of my physical drive (i.e. logical drive C and D) but I can not access those drives even though I have granted file sharing on the drive (it shows the hand under the drive).
    It worked but after a forded shut down due to a freeze state of the notebook, it stopped working.
    Any hints, anyone. I truly would appreciate, as I need to access the notebook from other machines as some files are only on the notebook.
    tks

      You said you shared the drive. Create a folder instead on the drive and share it. Make sure the everyone has security permission on the folder. Sharing the drive isn’t the best practice.

      Do network sharing cycle.

      Disconnect X61?s network drive and stop sharing drivers.
      Share drives again (from X61) and map network drives (from another computer).
