First post on this site ever.
At home, me and my roomie used to, under windows 7 to share files freely withion our workgroup, and it worked as intended.
I then decided to start developing for the windows phone and the marketplace and i therefore updated to windows 8.
I slowly got the hang of it, and actually likes it more and more... BUT! and there's always a but with MS it seems...
The filesharing does not work anymore, well the windows 7 computer can acces everything i share on the windows 8 machine.
The problem is, from the windows 8 machine i can only acces the public folders on the windows 7 machine.. Everything shared manually like drives og folders i can't gain acces to... It pops op a window with the help from windows troubleshooting, as usual windows troubleshooting is worth nothing.. So here i stand, wanting to share files, but can't?
My sharing settings are at the moment completely open on both machines, that means password sharing of, network discovery and filesharing on etc.
Anyone ran into this issue? Maybe solved how to fix it?
And on top of that, i do not want my users folder to be shared, but everytime i unshare it windows 8 just share it right back on next reboot?`- It's starting to **** me of seeing that i've used mac for a lot of years and yes, compared to this "It just works!", even on beta releases that is
Any takers ?
