Windows 7 Computer Cannot Access Shared Folders on Windows 8 Computer
First, I just have to say that after all of this time, after so many iterations of Windows, I can't believe accessing shared drives and folders across a network is STILL an issue. It is like it is a viral problem and the infection is passed from one version
of Windows to the next.
Upgraded to Windows 8 on my main desktop with no issues.
Have three other computers (netbook, two laptops) running Windows 7. For whatever reason, those three computers can no longer access shared folders on my main system.
The shared folders are visible on the three Windows 7 computers. They just can't be accessed.
All of the computers were on the same Home Group.
I checked the Network settings on the Windows 8 system and checked the folders that were being shared. They are all still shared and none of their settings appear to have changed.
