I recently set up a music server downstairs in my house, making use of Spotify and iTunes. I would also like to use it as a form of networked storage. It has a large 250gig hard drive, in two partitions. C & D. C is the operating system which I don't want to touch at all. I want to share D over the network so I can dump files to it when I have finished with them and may need them later. I have right clicked on D, sharing and security, clicked upon 'If you do not understand the risk but still want to share the root of the drive click here', then clicked upon 'Share this folder on the network', gave it a name and 'Allowed networked users to change the files. I have configured the firewall to allow certain IPs to connect to it. Clicked apply. But when I go to try and access the drive on my laptop it does not show up under 'My Network Places' Basically I cannot find the drive I have just shared.
