    Add a network location


    I have two Win 10 Pro 1909 computers on same LAN and some tasks I do on one and others on the second. Occasionally, I need to pull files from one to the other but not often. So I decided to add a specific folder on one using "Add a network location". Got the IP address correct, changed the permissions on the target folder, ran the wizard and all was good.

    However, when I try to access the remote folder, I get a "You do not have permission to access ....".

    I'm guessing I need to change some other permissions on the remote computer but thought I'd already done that. Is there an easy way to determine what permissions need to be changed?

    Thanks and no, I just set the share permissions. I'll look into the ntfs permissions issue now and report back.

    Not as straight forward as I thought but I'll persevere a while ...

    OK. Worked perfectly. Still not sure I'd be able to repeat but I'll try.
    Thanked.
