Sharing files in Win 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to share the contents of my laptop with another laptop through through existing LAN. Both laptops have win 8 OS.

    The other user fails to access shared files by using password. When I turn OFF the password protected sharing, the file was accessed.

    How can I protect my laptop/all of the files on it when sharing, so that only the authorized user will be able to see the contents of my laptop and/or edit the files. We are operating at a small organization with the laptops/PCs connected to a LAN.
