I need to access some of my hard drives on my desktop PC from my laptop without setting a public share folder. I run Windows 7 Ultimate on both
When I try to connect to \mycomputer\e$ it asks me for password (it's OK), but when I type "MYCOMPUTER\DJ Echelon" as user name and my local admin password it refuses to log in.
I usually use this way of logging in (with my company's domain) when accessing my work laptop's hard drive, and it works. I simply specified the domain name only because Windows wants me to log in inside my laptop's domain (which actually is not a domain, Windows just says "Domain: MYLAPTOP" so I tried to replace it).
What am I missing?
