Pretty new to Mac, but I’m trying to share folders over the network from my laptop (Mavericks) with my wife’s (Yosemite). From my machine, the
/users/brian/Public folder is sharing successfully, but other folders are not.
If I add new folders into the
/users/brian/Public folder, they show up instantly on her machine, but when I attempt to share a folder from another part of my system, i.e.
/Users/brian/gdrive/picasa_database (it never shows up for her).
I’ve tried sharing the folder by “right clicking on it > get info > clicking shared checkbox,” and also by going through “system preferences > sharing > file sharing > add folder.”
Neither method has worked. I have also checked permissions and both folders offer access to ”everyone.”
