I have two machines on a workgroup network. One machine has win 7 and the other has Win 10.

From win 10 machine I can access the C drive on the Win 7 machine since I shared the C drive on the win 7 machine.

But I can't access the C drive on the win 10 machine from the win 7 machine. If I try I get the following message:

Windows cannot access \\Desktop-k5odb58\c
You do not have permission to access \\Desktop-k5odb58\c. Contact your network administrator to request access.

So followed these instructions on my win 10 machine:


however when I get step 3:

Now tick on the full control and then click on “Apply”.

I get the following error message :

"Error applying security
An error occurred while applying security information to:


Failed to enumerate objects in the container. Access denied"

I don't know what else to try... does anyone know how I can resolve this.

Thanks you so much for any help!
