Hi all, I have spent a long time on this problem and trawled all the forums. Much of the discussion is old. I have two Windows 8 computers, set up for file sharing, but the process is not exactly even, perhaps becuase the desktop is a private computer and the laptop is a work one, or more likely because there is something wrong with the permissions on the desktop. That would be easy to tease out if someone knew about it. I have looked at all the links, and tried numerous solutions, though.
On the laptop,
I can open the home desktop computer and copy files from the desktop computer
But I can't copy files to the desktop, which is what I want to do.
On the desktop,
I can't open the laptop at all.
On the desktop, I am interested in a folder called Users, that is currently owned by SYSTEM. I tried changing ownership to my name and then granting Everyone Full Control, but I got error messages about Access rights. I am a little concerned that the files might not be in a good state, permissions wise. I ahve 30 years of Mac experience, so this is a new world for me.
I would seriously like to discuss this issue, as there does not seem to be anything fresh on it at present.
