    I have tried to share another random folder on my husband's PC. I shared it the same way as the folder I can't access (by right clicking the folder and sharing through the Properties, not by command line). I can access that folder just fine. It's something particular about his userfolder that is the problem.

    Yes, I think that is the case.

    I have now tried everything possible to get sharing to fail, can't do that! Especially sharing and setting rights with those NET SHARE and ICACLS commands works every time.

    A suggestion to your husband: create a new folder, share and set rights with NET SHARE and ICACLS commands, copy the full content from the problem folder to the new folder, test if sharing works then if yes, delete the original.

    Okay, well I have tried a few things since last post.

    I took all sharing off the users folder. I think I was sharing \Users and \Users\HusbandName and maybe something was conflicting. Went through all folders within and unshared by unchecking Shared checkbox. Then I right clicked on Users and put Everyone, Full. Voila! It worked...HOWEVER now my husband's PC cant see MY Users\MyName folder!

    FACEPALM!!! Oy. I removed him from the homegroup and readded. Nope, still didn't work What the heck? Any ideas? LOL. Thank you.

    My Win8-PC is happily accessing everyone, watching from the sidelines, wondering what is the matter with my Win7-PC and Win10-PC.

    This Users\MyName folder is on your Windows 10 PC? Did you try stop sharing, then re-share it?

    I think I may gotten it all working. I basically had to go to each pc, and unshare everything and remove from homegroup and rejoin. All three PCs. Rebooting was required, some multiple. I even had to reset my WDMyCloud drive and sort it all back out on 2 pcs. Unless I reboot everything tomorrow and it all freaks out again, I think I am good. *crosses fingers*. I literally just got it all sorted (as sorted as I think it can be), about 20 minutes ago. Thank you for your help. I really appreciate it! I don't think I would have ended up here so soon had it not been for a lot of your input. I'll probably wait for a couple days to mark this thread as solved though, lol.

    I really would like to know what caused this. Anyway, always nice to hear fellow members got their issues resolved, let's hope it will continue working.

    An extra brownie point for you to come back to tell you got it working. Quite often we wonder here what happened when OP will not post back

    I would like to know exactly what happened too, I just did not have the time to investigate. I really have to get my work software back on the computer. I need to image the disk to restore back to later if needed, before putting the work software on it. I couldn't do a restore image with a messed up network, lol.

    Would never leave hanging anyone nice enough to help me!! You helped more than you realize. Will let you know if I need rescued again after a few days, lol.
