    Using Net Share perhaps ? Can't quite remember how to either.

    @fdegrove I think you're right, there.
    It did have something to do with sharing. I just can't remember where I read that work around.
    I just couldn't really figure it out, and decided that since my libraries(downloads, music, pictures, videos),
    are on my 2nd internal, and documents are sync'd to OneDrive(only documents) and only desktop remaining on C: disk,
    I didn't need it for my desktop PC.

    It works on my laptop though, with a 1 1/2TB USB ext. drive.
