  1. Hi,
    i have 7 pcs connected through a hub and 6 of them can share everything, the problem is the other one witch allows only to browse for shared folders.

    It can access all the others without a problem.
    All can browse its shared folders.
    None can copy / open / delete any shared file from this computer.
    If i try to copy a file i get: "Cannot Copy 'Filename':Access is Denied"

    The pcs are a mix of win XP Home / Pro, The one with these problems is XP home.

    Any Ideas??

    Check the Sharing...permissions on that offending PC

    as he just said...the PC that's sharing the files, make sure they (or the folder they are in) is not set to "read only". Just thought i'd illaberate. Make all permissions available.
