    Have you turned off simple file saharing?
    And is the drive in NTFS?
    Also are you able to share C: and browse into program files and do stuff?

    OK, once I figured out what you meant by "Simple file Sharing" and turned it off, that did the trick.

    Cheers

    They should have 1 setting that turns off all the dumb options
