I set up file sharing for all of the computers in our office a couple of years ago and haven't really had to touch it since, but we've now got three new employees and three people who now need to access a shared folder on my computer.
Networking is not my forté at all, so I can't remember if I'm missing something. But there's a laptop running Windows 7. I've made sure that it's in the same workgroup as my PC, which it is. The laptop can see my PC on the network and can access the public folder, but it does not give me the option to login to a user account that I have created.
I created a user account on my PC called David. The laptop is called DAVID-PC. When the laptop browses to my PC on the network, it doesn't give me the option of logging in to the "David" account and thus it cannot access the folder that I have shared with "David." It will only access the public folder.
What am I missing / doing wrong?
