    Hi all,

    More a general PC query.

    I've never had any probs like this before.

    I have 2 machines both with XP Pro SP2 and all patches etc installed. They both run with the same username and password for the main user and simple file sharing is turned off.

    I have shared a drive which both can see. However the second machine does not seem to be able to see odd sub folders? Weird thing is that if I manually type the folder name into windows explorer it's there so it can't be a permissions thing?

    Anyone any ideas?

    Cheers :)

    Paul.

    may be a silly question, but are these subfolders hidden? and are both user accounts set up to be able to see hidden folders?

    Nah, normally viewable and shared and everything. That's why I'm so confused. I've been doing this for years and never had a problem which is why it's weird!
