Delete public files
I'm new to this network stuff. Just got it up and running.
I placed 2 files in my Public Download folder.
From the second computer I access the folder and copied them to Publie
download folder .
Now I wsih to delete them from both computers. When I try from each
comp. I get same message. " you need permission to perform this action
".
What's the deal ? How can I delete them ?
Thanks for any and all help....
