winXP home sp1
i have one folder shared a comp across a home network, full read/write access across the network and from other user accounts. i once decided to make the folder private so other users could not see the files unless logged on as me. now i cant make the folder public like it was before. i initially made it private by going into control panel > user accounts > my account > create password
this created my password and asked it i wanted to make the files private, i checked yes.
now when i go back to remove my password, the folder is still private, no prompt poped up asking me to make the folder public. if i right click on the folder in explorer and go to teh sharing tab, the check box for "make this folder private" is greyed out, i cant change it from here.
any ideas on how to change the sharing settings? :)
