    Give Access to -> Advanced Sharing, not working on my network


    My Network

    Router (both computers connected with WiFi)

    PC1 , ZOTAC NANO (Windows 10 Pro Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.592)) - this is my "file server" with a large SSD and external HD

    PC2, SURFACE BOOK, (Windows 10 Pro Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.592))

    When I try to share the external drive D: on PC1 I do the following:
    Right Click D: -> Give Access to -> Advanced Sharing -> Advanced Sharing -> TICK "Share this folder" -> Permissions -> Everyone (Full control ON), (Change ON), (READ ON)
    Give Access to -> Advanced Sharing, not working on my network-pic1.jpg

    I then go to PC2 and do the following:
    In File Explorer under "Network" I can see and click on PC1 called "HQ-ZOTAC".
    My share is listed as "D"
    I click on "D" and get the message "You do not have permission to access \\Hq-zotac\d. Contact your network administrator to request access."

    Both computers are part of the default named "WORKGROUP"
    Private Network discovery is ON, on both computers
    Guest or Public Network discovery is ON, on both computers
    Public folder sharing is ON, on both computers
    The WiFi connection is set to "Private" network profile on both computers


    Extra information:
    I cannot use the Sharing Wizard on the root of the D: drive, but I can use it on any folder residing on the D: drive. When I share a folder on D: using the Sharing Wizard PC2 can access that folder just fine.

    Welcome to the forum. If you share a folder that is the share properties but you also need to set NTFS permission or you can't access it have you set NTFS permission?

    Thanks Samuria. No I haven't. Where and how is that done?

    Thanks Samuria, that solved it.

    I looked up NTFS settings and found it under "security" in properties.

    I added user "Everyone" and it now works.
