With Win7 Home Premium computers when I browse or map to \\server\Users\myname only 3 folders are shown - Documents, Music, Pictures - yet when looking at that directory from the local console there are 22 sub-folders. Why aren't they all available over the network, and more importantly, how do I fix it so I can see them all?

The use case is to map H: (home) to my profile directory on the desktop computer from my laptop, so I don't have to try and keep them in sync. Both are running Windows 7 Home Premium, desktop is 64bit, laptop 32.

UPDATE: On the desktop C:\Users is shared and myname is a member of the Administrators group on both machines (and uses the same password). Advanced Sharing >> Permissions shows Everyone and server\Administrators as having Full Control.

tried registry tweak for enabling access to \\server\C$, no go (but didn't reboot) howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/… –  matt wilkie Oct 23 '12 at 8:25
    
Are they included as shared folder? Do you have permission to open them from connections else than local console? –  Rob Oct 23 '12 at 8:39
    
@Robuust, Yes C:\Users is shared and myname is a member of the Administrators group on both machines (and uses the same password) –  matt wilkie Oct 23 '12 at 8:48
    
Are the folders you don't see using inherited values? Or do those folders also have administrator roles added in them? –  Rob Oct 23 '12 at 9:14
