Hi all, I hope that someone can assist me... My situation: I am running a small network. It consists of 3 pcs (2 win xp home and 1 win 95), a server (win2k stand alone server), and a wireless laptop. The problem: The WIN XP home machines do not see the server when browsing the network through the explorer, and the server cannot see the WIN XP home pc's when browsing the network through explorer. This issue did not happen till I had to rebuild the server machine. The server is a Win2k Server, stand alone. It is not promoted to a primary domain controller (maybe I should promote it). When I try to view the network I cannot, but if I connect using map network drive, this functions ok. When I am using one of the Win XP Home pcs to browse the network, they can see the other win xp home pcs, but not the server. And again, if I use map network drive to the server, it connects fine. At the same time, I use robocopy to copy my data to the server, as a backup, because being at university, I do not want to loose my data, I have already been there and lost it once, and do not want to go through that again. However, I think due to the network issue I am having, I am getting this error: New File 0 MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase 04:00 -> 04:00 ERROR 5 (0x00000005) Copying File D:\System Volume Information\MountPointManagerRemoteDatabase Access is denied. When I look at the disk manager on the win2k server, it tells me the layout for the drive I am copying to is simple... is there anyway to change that? Here are the system summaries for WIN xp and Win2k Server: WIN2K SERVER: System Information report written at: 02/12/2006 15:33:02 [System Summary] Item Value OS Name Microsoft Windows 2000 Server Version 5.0.2195 Service Pack 4 Build 2195 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Name EXODUS System Manufacturer System Integrator System Model Intel 440BX System Type X86-based PC Processor x86 Family 6 Model 5 Stepping 2 GenuineIntel ~349 Mhz BIOS Version Award Modular BIOS v4.51PG Windows Directory C:\WINNT System Directory C:\WINNT\system32 Boot Device \Device\Harddisk0\Partition1 Locale United States User Name EXODUS\Administrator Time Zone GMT Standard Time Total Physical Memory 81,396 KB Available Physical Memory 5,148 KB Total Virtual Memory 659,700 KB Available Virtual Memory 406,612 KB Page File Space 578,304 KB Page File C:\pagefile.sys NOTE: I cannot change the locale...
