Cannot access shared folder

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So this is a extremely odd issue im having, up untill recently I was able to access a hdd in my main pc to my laptop but now it says that I dont have permission out of nowhere and I have it set up so there's no password needed.

The hdd is an esata hdd running on vista ultimate and my laptop is windows7 and i am in the same workgroup and this gets even more bizzar is that I can still get into all the other hdds with no problem at all, it's just my esata that seems to want to be a fussy little baby. I tried other esata ports but it still hates me.

Should i turn on password sharing and see if that works?

I believe it is a security feature that it won't allow shared network files, on a PC with no password.

That is weird, but it's just easier to have a password, and have windows remember it.
