Everything on the network was set up fine with sharing between all the computers and it seemed like as time went on the windows 8 computer encountered more and more problems. One of the xp computers suddenly required a password to access the windows 8 computer. Windows 8 suddenly couldn't access any of the other computers but you could still push files to it from the other ones. But now I cant push any files to the windows 8 computer or access any of the windows 7 or xp computers files from the windows 8 comp. I get an error message saying Network Error: Windows cannot access \\insertnamehere\insertdrivehere : You do not have permission to access \\insertnamehere\insertdrivehere. Contact your network administrator to request access. I get this error message through both windows 8 and 7, and xp gives a cannot access error. But I can see the drives I wish to access and the computers themselves I just cannot get into the drives even though all my permissions seem to be set properly. If anyone can help it would be appreciated.
