File that will not perish

By howardrg

  1. I cannot, from my desktop PC, delete files and folders located on a networked laptop. Why? The error message I receive is "Destination Folder Access Denied - You Need Permission to Perform this Action." The desktop is Vista and the laptop is XP. I own both and have complete physical dominion over them both. They are sitting right next to each other on my desk. I have done everything I know how to to grant the proper permissions on the XP computer. I even downloaded scesp4i.exe to get the security tab on the context menu in XP, and I have given full permission to everyone and their dog to do whatever they want to the files and I still get this error. What am I doing wrong?

    Turn Firewall off on XP (laptop) for testing then try access to files.

    No joy!

    Rt click the Shared folder and Remove Share.

    Reboot.

    Share Folder again. Retry!
