file share

By Daygo ·
I have a windows XP Pro machine that will not find a network file share. The machine has the right IP info (subnet and gateway). I can ping any server on the network including the server that the data I am trying to access resides on. What can become corrupt in Windows XP to stop this from occurring? I really do not want to re-format and start over.

Have you set the share on the folder you wish to access? Does that share have permissions correctly set so you can access it?
Right click on the folder you wish to share, select sharing, then "select share this folder", then select permissions. Make sure the group, or your account is allowed to access the share.
