Vista Forgets File Sharing
I recently purchased an enclosure for a two year old hard drive in order to
use it to back up files between computers on my home network. I have been
doing this successfully for years with a Smart Drive that is now full. Both
these hard drives are attached to the same one year old Dell laptop with
Vista Home Premium SP1. With the new drive, I set the drive to be shared and
it works just fine until the computer to is turned off. When the computer is
restarted, the hard drive is no longer shared, ie the setting changed. If
the drive is turned off and then back on without restarting the computer, the
drive is still shared, so to me, it appears that Vista isn't remembering the
settings for this hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.
