If I download files using Ubuntu, and store them on my Vista partition, when I go to Vista, they all appear with the sharing icon on them. In the sharing dialog (right click > share > change permissions) it says the following (doesn't mean anything to me, but maybe it helps someone answering):
In Ubuntu I can access all the files from the Windows partition, whether they're shared or not, so I guess it's not really important, just a bit annoying. If I try to stop sharing any files it takes several minutes for the dialog to say it's done, even though the icon disappears off the files pretty much instantly.
If I stop sharing any folders, the files inside the folders still have the icon.
So in short, I want to do one of two things:
- In Ubuntu, make it so any files saves to the Windows partition don't show up as "shared".
- In Vista, make unsharing files a lot simpler/quicker!
EDIT: should also add that I already disabled everything under Control Panel \ Network and Internet \ Network and Sharing Center
