Hello, i am presently trying to network my local hard drive c over my home network
i enabled sharing, gave full control to everbody however if i try to access the hard drive from another location this comes up
What steps did you follow to set it up? This guide might come in handy.
I second that sharing your c: is a bad idea. If you really want to do this on windows, I would either use another storage system (external hdd, raid, etc...) for shared files, or another partiton, or a vhd (which you can easily make in 'computer management' which is already installed on your computer).
If your using an old laptop as the NAS, may I suggest trying out linux? It'll probably be easier to set up, and you'll be able to use it for more services easily.
