I have just downloaded the Network Magic trial and installed it on my PC, my
wife's laptop and my daughter's PC.  All run on Win XP/HE.

On their computers it has installed without a problem.

However on mine I am told that for 2 folders on my data partition "access is
denied" and that sharing can't take place.  These folders are 'Documents' &
'Music' - critical sharing folders.  Both are set up in Windows for full
sharing but aren't accessable on the network via Windows only either.  Other
folders on the same data partition work just fine.  The Documents folder has
an icon which shows in Windows Explorer as if its not seen as a folder but
has a  a sharing hand icon undernaeth it.

Can you help me with this?  Thanks.

Thanks again.

Steve
