After upgrading to Lion, my USB hard drive(not only USB, see below) share is no longer accessible. I can see the shared folder, but when I try to enter from Windows 7 box it says Windows cannot access \\path\\to\\usbsharedresource.

Even BOOTCAMP partition which was shared and working now inaccessible...

Have you checked the settings in Sharing preferences pane, as well as the folder permissions for shared folders? – Daniel Beck Jul 23 '11 at 11:24
@Daniel Beck: Sharing preferences are same, shared resources are in "Shared Folders" listbox. I don't think for NTFS folders I can specify permissions unless there is some new hidden checkbox somewhere. – Pablo Jul 23 '11 at 11:38
