    1. Unshared them and reboot the system where it is shared on...
    2. Make sure you use login ID and password that has admin rights to all the PCs
    3. Now share the folders you want, but make sure you allow you as the user name
    4. Do this for all users on the other PCs who you want to have full write/read or read
