How do I share a folder on one Windows8 computer and access it from another Windows8 computer?
I do not want to use HomeGroups. I set them up initially, but I'm much more content with mapped network drives which make sense to me. Homegroups do not.
I have been at this for three hours and am ready to put a computer monitor through the window, but this is what I have tried so far.
Two computers. email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org which are both Windows8 live accounts or whatever.
- On server both users have been added. Currently logged in as email@example.com.
- Shared folder "Photos'. I see the shared folder from PC, but access is denied
- Ran fsmgmt.msc
- Added full permissions for "Everyone" and for "firstname.lastname@example.org". Access is denied.
- Tried adding every user under the sun. Access is denied.
