I have two computers:
- A (running Windows Vista)
- B (running XP).
I shared C: on computer A (as \\A\C ), and require a username (X) plus pw to access it. If I browse the the share \A\C on computer B, after entering username+pw I can access most folders, but one folder "\\A\C\Users\U" (i.e. the home folder of user U ) gives me "permission denied".
I looked at that folder's permissions on A, and it has full access permissons for all "Administrators". I use the account "A\X" to authenticate when accessing the share on A. X is a user account (on A) that is an "Administrator" according to Window's user management.
Still, I cannot access this folder. If I explicitly add the "X" account to the accounts that may access folder F (under Properties / Security), I can access it without problems.
I do not understand why I need to explicitly grant permission for X to get access to F. Is it not enough that X is an Administrator account?
