I recently wanted to share some drives from my Mac with my Windows 10 machine. I only wanted to share a couple of folders but couldn't quite figure it out so I simply typed the IP of my Mac in the Run dialog box as explained here. This enabled me full access to all the files on my Mac but this was not exactly what I wanted. I simply wanted to access 2 hard drives on that Mac, not the entire system folders
So my questions are:
1. How do I sever the connection to this computer that was established in the Run prompt window? EDIT: SOLVED
2. How do I share specific directories from the Mac with my Windows 10 machine? (I have followed the instructions of this article but the drives still aren't showing up on my PC. There doesn't seem to be any instructions in that article about what to do on the PC end).
Network Discovery and File Sharing are both enabled in Windows. It should be noted that the PC is discoverable on the Mac, but nothing showing up on the PC.
