How to share files on C drive
I am having issues sharing files located on the C drive of my host computer.
Both computers are running Vista Ultimate SP1. I have set up the sharing,
but I get access denied when I attempt to access the files. Any suggestions
on what I need to change to fix this?

Hi
Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
allowed to be shared.

Kevin,

The most likely cause is a personal firewall. What antivirus protection do you
use?

Beyond that, check sharing setup on both computers. Are you using Password
Protected Sharing Enabled, or Disabled?
