I have about 30 folders containing digital photographs in my Shared Folders/Shared Picures directory. While most of them are accessible to other users, five of them are not. Note - I am referring to sharing folders on the one computer, not on a network.
The MS Help does not give much information about how shared folders works, so does anyone know what else I should check on these folders to make sure that other users of my computer can see them? Does each folder have a security property for example?

Are you using Windows XP home or pro?

Are you using Windows XP home or pro?

I'm using Windows XP Home edition, SP1

I don't really ever work with XP home, so I can't really tell you details about it. Personally, I would just turn on file sharing and do it that way

Here is a site that explains file sharing for XP a little bit.
