One PC not able to access shared folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of my pc's is unable to access the shared folders I have given it permissions to access.   It can access the one folder that is open to Guest access.  It can open the home server console.   I have rebooted both machines.   This computer did not have its own accout at first and used Guest, I recently restricted Guest and set up user accounts for each PC.   I have checked the user name and password is the same on the PC and on the WHS.   I have deleted and recreated the account on the WHS. 

    I have run out of ideas.   What else could cause this?

  • That did it.
    I never knew "Windows distinguishes between the user name and the display name".
    Many thanks
