    Accessing hard drive in laptop from desktop.

    I am getting the error windows cannot access \\CHRS_LAPTOP\laptop harddrive

    What is going on, I set the sharing preferences so no password is needed to access the hard drive and everyone can access it. This worked in windows 7 and 8.1, what changed in windows 10?

    Are you using an MS account. If yes try to switch to a local account and share the drive again.
    Not sure why its not working in case of MS Account

    Try accessing it with the IP. You can access it with the Live account as the username. Just remember that it is lower case for username.
