Browsing shared folder over LAN sometimes shows outdated list of files; sometimes OK

Question: Browsing shared folder over LAN sometimes shows outdated list of files; sometimes OK

I have a computer running Vista Home Premium. On it, I have a folder shared read-only over the network as "downloads."

I can access the folder from other computers on the LAN, using \\computer\downloads. My problem is, sometimes the browsing computer (an XP Pro SP3 machine) will get an outdated list of the directory.

For instance, I have added many files in the past couple of weeks. Yet, for some reason, even today one of the computers would show the most recent file as being from late January. I've tried refreshing and shift-refreshing. Doesn't help.

What's weird is that this behavior seems to vary from client computer to client computer. One of my XP Pro SP3 machines will have the most-recent list of files, and the other one will still be a little bit behind, not showing the newest files.

I can't figure this out! I would think that the problem must lie on the side of the client, yet I have never had this problem previously in all my years of XP-to-XP file sharing.

Is there some sort of network cache present in XP that can be cleared? Or any other ideas on how to solve this?

Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Browsing shared folder over LAN sometimes shows outdated list of files; sometimes OK

It's not unnatural for what shows in My Network Places (XP) or Network (Vista) to be out of date, but usually not that out of date. In My Network Places click 'view workgroup computers' and you should force an update.

On any (properly working) network one computer becomes the Master Browser. It determines what's on the network and periodically updates the other computers.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the XP subforum or the Vista/7 one, as it relates to both. Hope I made the right choice. :-)

My problem is this: I have a Windows 7 Ultimate desktop (recently upgraded from Vista Home Premium) with a C:\downloads\ folder that is shared over the network as "downloads."

On a second computer, an XP computer, one I set up the correct sharing permissions (that is, to give access to Computer 2's username), I can then browse to \\desktop\downloads\.

The problem is this: The file list show in \\desktop\downloads\ is outdated, and many files and folders are missing. There is nothing special about these files or folders. They're not hidden or anything.

For instance, opening up C:\downloads\ on my desktop shows a folder with 3,118 items -- files and folders.

Accessing \\desktop\downloads\ from another computer shows 111 items.

Interestingly, accessing \\desktop\downloads\ from the desktop shows the correct amount: 3,118 items.

I have tried refreshing the file list, obviously, from the second computer. I have also tried accessing \\desktop\downloads\ from a third computer (also XP) on the same network, with similar problems... leading me to believe the problem is on the Windows 7 computer.

The W7 desktop has no problem accessing other shares.

I should also add that all three of these computers are on the same workgroup and can ping each other.

Also, as a test, I created a brand-new folder, C:\downloads2\,... Read more

I share files on my home network between my desktop PC and my laptop. I often move files between the two computers by placing folders on the desktops and then working with them or moving them to specific folders. The network for my laptop lists its desktop folder, but for the desktop PC, the topline \Users root folder is listed, not the desktop. Network and sharing work just fine. But how do I list the shared PC desktop folder so that I don?t have to drill down through the \Users file structure to reach the desktop folder?

Hi,
I hope somebody has run into this - I am pulling my hair out. About two months ago I started deploying Windows 7 pro 64 bit PC's in small workgroup setting with less than 12 computers.  The existing network was/is XP. It is a simple router/NAT device
at the internet side, and internally there is a switch. The router hands out addresses via DHCP.
What I am seeing is Win7 computers show up twice - or sometimes not at all when browsing the network. The computers that don't show up can be forced to show up properly by typing in their name in the address bar - voila they show up in the list. Hitting
f5 repeatedly will eventually clear it up. They are accessible via UNC. Its the list that looks wonky.


Details on the config - Dell optiplex GX620's. Network discovery is on, password protected file sharing is set to yes. Other things I have done to resolve:
Put all machines on static addresses, install and configure a WINS server, removed IPv6 via MS "Fit it". All machines are confirmed to be in hybrid Netbios mode. I shut off home groups in the services cpl. I forced the computers on 24/7. I disabled the power
settings on the network adapters. Finally, I disabled LLDP & LLDPR on the adapters. 
Has anybody seen this? Can anybody help?

Some days ago I accepted the upgrade to v6 of Thunderbird. In the next day or so, when I started Tbird, it displayed a small Safe Mode window. which I had not asked for, at least not intentionally. I had not heard of Safe Mode for Tbird, and I didn't know how to deal with the window. In trying to get out of S.M, I flailed around and managed to lose my customizations. I have probably restored most of those, so this is not an issue. --- However, my main problem is this: in my Folder List, none of the folders have text names; they all have numbers instead. They work like the text names, but it's *very* hard to navigate. When I click on a folder, the text name of that folder is displayed at the top of the screen, in normal fashion. -- My question is, how can I make the Folder List display text names? --- Thanks.

I have a small home network where I share a few folders between PCs (windows XP). All are in the same workgroup name, IP subnet & same router. When I open 'My Network Places' to browse shares, the shares on the other PCs are listed as 'The Internet' resources rather than 'Local Network'.

This causes Windows to sometimes prompt me for permission to open a file from one of the other shared folders.

Does anyone know a way around this?
 

Answer:Solved: shared folder on LAN shows as 'The Internet'

This is a cosmetic defect, but I've heard of it before. Here's one person's resolution of the issue.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/23996-42-shared-files-show-internet-heading-local-network

I have no idea about being unable to share files, however I did have an issue with my shared folders showing up under the Internet heading instead of Local Network in My Network Places. After reading for several hours, I found it has something to do with IE7, which I had recently installed. This is the fix I found:

1. Go to Start/Control Panel/Internet Options/Security/Local Intranet/Sites/Advanced

2. Add the computer name of the system whose shared folders you are trying to "move" in this format:
file://ComputerName
Click Add

3. Repeat step 3 for next computer name if there are others on your local network.
After you’ve entered them all, click Close, Ok, Ok

I did not check or uncheck anything, only added the computer names. To clarify, when I clicked on “Sites” everything was already checkmarked for “automatically detect intranet network” and then once I clicked on Advanced the checkbox there was NOT checked. I did not touch any of these settings.

When I finished I opened My Network Places and it had worked. You'll need to do the same thing to each computer you are having the issue with. I hope this works for you! Click to expand...

Hello everyone,

I'm using a laptop (with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed) as a DVR and media streamer to all other devices in the house.
My TV recordings are recorded into a temporary folder and when the recording is finished the program moves the files into the My Videos folder.

The My Videos folder is shared so we can watch the recordings from the Xbox downstairs or other Windows 7 devices in the house.
This worked pretty well in the past but for some reason new recordings (or downloads) aren't shared by default anymore. All files have a small lock icon (shared with nobody) and I have to manually share new files within an already shared folder.

This is pretty annoying and takes away the convenience.

I would appreciate any tip to fix this problem to have all files in the shared folder(s) shared by default.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:New files aren't shared in shared folder

It's easy once you know how, just right click the C:/Video's folder and choose properties, Security tab then Advanced button, then just put a check mark where it says "Replace all Child Object Permission Entries with Inheritable Permissions Entries from this Object, then hit Apply, OK....this will fix the problem you described.

I pinned the Files folder in my onedrive.live.com account to the Windows 10 Start menu, and also saved this folder as a favorite in Edge, which is my default browser. But after closing Edge, when I then click the onedrive.live.com tile in the start menu, or after opening Edge, if I click the OneDrive link in the favorites bar, OneDrive opens my Shared folder rather than the desired Files folder. To see the Files folder, I can click "OneDrive" in the menu bar. Moreover, after the Files folder has been opened, if I then add a tab and click on OneDrive in the favorites bar, OneDrive correctly opens the Files folder, and will continue to operate this way (the correct way) as long as I don't close the browser. When I saved my OneDrive Files folder as a favorite in Firefox, I experienced the same problem. So the problem does not appear to be related to Edge.
How can I make OneDrive.Live.com always open in the Files Folder the first time?

I have all 4 PC's in the office using Windows 7 Pro. I have one computer that is designated to house my share folder for scanning documents and attaching them to our management system.  We are finding that multiple problems occur - not at once and at
different times .  Sometimes, the document within the shared folder called "IMAGEBATCH" will not delete.  Sometimes that document deletes, and then re-appears within the IMAGEBATCH folder.  Sometimes the document will not
scan through the network to the IMAGEBATCH folder.  Sometimes we get an error saying we "don't have permission to delete this file".  These circumstances occur on all computers, including the computer that houses the original file IMAGEBATCH. 
Sometimes in the day, each computer that is supposedly looking at the same IMAGEBATCH folder see different files.
Restarting the computer clears the problems, but then start right back up at irregular intervals, sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the middle of the day.
I did find a duplicate file named IMAGEBATCH on the "C" drive of that PC, so I deleted that, but the symptoms are still there.  This is the only shared folder in our entire network.  What can I be missing?  I have checked to make

Edit: Sorry I made the topic an forgot to change the title. Should be: "List Files in Folder With Ignore List" or something along those lines.

I'm a game server admin. What I want to do is generate a text file which will be used when I launch the server. An example of the text file I want to produce is here:


Code:
sv_name "PlayMyServer"
sv_maxplayers 16
sv_mapcycle_add wizard ctf3
sv_mapcycle_add bloodgulch ctf3
sv_mapcycle_begin
Line 1 and 2 will be hard coded into the script. In fact, this section will have more lines but for this example, I've cut it down. Lines 3 and 4 are codes that add all maps to the server: wizard and bloodgulch. These are *.map files. Line 5, like lines 1 and 2, are to be hard coded.

The map files are in the \maps subdirectory of the game. What I'm looking to do, is create a batch file that will generate the above text. That is, getting a list of map files in the \maps directory and concatenating it with the proper text before and after. I also want to have the .map extension removed from the lists.

The \maps subdirectory has a few *.map files that aren't actual maps, in fact I don't know what they are. So, I would like to be able to allow for exclusions, which I will hard code as well. (i.e.: ui.map, sounds.map)

Note that this script will probably be saved somewhere in the Quick Launch folder and I want to specify the location of the output and the name of the file. It will be in a text file format.

Answer:List Files in Folder With Ignore List

DIR "D:\Data\" /s > "D:\List.txt"

This script will make a text listing all files in a folder.

D:\Data is where the folder is located and D is the drive where the text file "List" will be created. Note Windows 7 will NOT allow the text file to be created on C-drive.

You may have to edit to get what you want in the text files. I have found this script to be very useful.

I have a PC with Windows 8.1 and a Mac with Mavericks. I have a folder on the Mac that is shared with the PC. When I'm on the PC and I try to open a file that is shared by the Mac, such as an ISO file (a disk image), then I get a message saying that I cannot open the file, or the file is in use (it depends on the app/filetype). I have the same problem when I open a video file. Strangely, text files and PDF files are just fine. And if I copy any of the problematic files to the local Windows disk, then I can open them just fine.

The specific error messages are:

- AVI files opened in VLC: "Your input can't be opened. VLC is unable to open the MRL."
- ISO files opened by Windows Explorer: "Sorry, there was a problem mounting the file."

This only started happening after I upgraded to Windows 8.1 on the PC and Mavericks on the Mac. Mavericks upgraded its SMB version from SMB1 to SMB2, so perhaps that is related?
Does anyone know what the problem might be, and how I could fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:W8.1: Can't open files on SMB folder shared by a Mac

Welcome to Eight Forums,

The upgrade seems to be an issue in your case. I'd suggest for you to download the latest driver from the manufacturer's site for your network adapter, see if that helps. I don't think that there's a way to revert your Maverick's SMB version.

Please post an update or your progress.

Yes, your friend can add files to your shared folder, provided you have the proper permission settings for the folder set up. On your PC, go to Onedrive and navigate to the folder you have shared, and click on "share", then "invite people", then add the people you want to allow, then change "recipients can only view" to "recipients can edit". Done!

Hello all, thanks for your help.

Goal :
Sharing a Vista 64 Home Premium Folder with an XP Laptop.

Problem :
XP can view folders, but not files, in the Vista Shared Folder. Files that were in the folder when sharing was setup in Vista are accessible, but new files are not displayed. New Folders do display, however.

System Setup :
MSHOME network, Vista private network sharing of a single directory. Vista connected by cable, XP laptop by Wireless.

Already Done :
- Triple-Checked Permissions (guest, everyone, etc.)
- Normal Vista Sharing configuration in place
- Checked through specific settings for 'guest' and 'everyone' access of the folder, including 'read files..'
- Checked the net in detail..no luck

The folder I'm sharing is a P2P download folder. Sharing doesn't work properly when the program is on or off, so it doesn't seem to affect anything.

Other things I've done :
- Turned 'indexing' on
- Made sure 'read only' was not enabled under folder settings.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
acijanos

Answer:Vista Shared Folder Files not Updating

The P2P stuff isn't a factor - created a new directory and shared - same problem.

Hi all,

This is a problem that's been bothering me for days. I use an older computer (Windows XP Professional, SP2) that's relatively slow, but has a decent amount of disk space to store some of my files. While I store files on there, I prefer to access the files using my newer computer (Windows XP Home, SP2) since it's faster to extract/unzip files.

I can access all the folders & subfolders in the Shareddocs directory of my old computer perfectly, *except* ZIP/RAR files. Once I unzip the archive, my new computer can access all the files. But if I try to use my new computer to unzip the archives, it's telling me that it cannot find the file & that I don't have permissions for it.

So far, I've tried unchecking the "Simple File Sharing" box, and checking the permissions, and I have given everyone Full Control on my old computer. But I am still unable to extract/view the archives.

Any idea what might be wrong? I can just unzip everything on the old computer, but it's so horrendously slow I'd like some sort of solution to this.

Thanks in advance!

I have two computers, a desktop running Windows 7 Professional and a netbook running Windows 7 starter edition. I have shared some folders on the netbook and can access them from the desktop computer. However, I am unable to share folders on the desktop. From the netbook, I can see the desktop on my network and also the shared folders, but when I try to open them I am told I have insufficient authorization to so so. I have checked the authorizations on the desktop side and can see that "Everyone" has permission to open these folders for reading, and that the authorization extends also to subfolders and files.

I've been trying all day to resolve this problem and would appreciate any help.

When I set up these permissions, why doesn't Windows warn me that there's something else that will impede what I'm trying to do?

Answer:Insufficient authorization to see files in shared folder

You might try going into the Security tab of the Desktop's main drive or folder you want to share then add "Everyone" there as well. Security tab>Edit button>Add button>type Everyone for object name, apply, ok and so forth.

However, when I move (Ctrl+X) a file to the shared folder on the pc with win7, the file does not apear when I go to the shared folder from the XP pc.

Anyone knows what Im doing wrong?

BY THE WAY, is there a way to share the entire C drive or we are strict to the public folders? Its wierd that I gave full access permissions to the C drive, yet an error occurs while trying to access from XP. Only the public folders can be accessed.

You still need to allow premission to access the shared files on the Win7 machine. Just set up permissions on the Win7 machine by going to "Network and sharing center" and then to the left choose "Change Advance sharing settings". The select the settings in the pictures below.

You should also have access to the entire C drive once you do that.

I've been using my XP machine as my file server and it works perfectly.

Additional Note:
Performing a net user * /DELETE has no effect on the share that is not working properly. Also when performing a new use the share does not appear in the list.

I keep having a re-occurring issue.

I start by creating a shared folder on a Windows 2000 Server. From my Windows XP Pro laptop I'm able to access the files in the shared folder. At some point either from logging off the network or network changes that occur over night, I lose share. By losing the share I mean that I can access the folder that is shared but it does not show any files in the folder even though there are files. If I turn off the server, I get the same empty folder results. I've tried registering and flushing the DNS several times and reassigning my IP address. I'm at a loss as to why the share will not show any files. If I create a new share on the same server it will work fine until I leave for the day and return the next day. I would like to understand more about how shares are created and handled in Windows and then I might be able to figure out why this problem is occurring.

Thanks,
Mark

I've been using file and printer sharing for quite a while on various home networks, but this problem has me completely stumped.

I have one folder on each of 2 Windows XP Pro machines shared. I can access some of the files in this shared folder but not others. The problem is not specific to size (some are larger, others are small) or type (some are EXE's, others are .TXT's). I simply get the "Access denied" error when trying to open, run, or copy some of the files.

I've tried deleting the folder and re-creating it, and that doesn't work. I've disabled Windows firewall on both systems. That didn't work either.

Hi Guys,

I am migrating my user's home folders from one storage server to another storage server. We have offline files sync enabled and users use to work at work in offline mode and the files/folders sync when they connect to the company's network.
I have done some testing before migrating and found an issue that need assistance from your guys.

I pick a test user say "Testuser01" and logout him out from the system. I have copied all home drive stuff from Sharedserever-1 (Old) to Sharedserever-2 (New) for test user and make the required changes in AD profile and GPO for drive mapping. As
the Testuser01's documents pointing to H-drive (My Documents) are available offline on laptop in Documents folder. Now I have worked offline as "tesetuser01" and created some test files but when I logged in and connected
with my company's network H-drive is it correctly pointing to new Sharedserever (i.e. Sharedserever-2) and Documents path also redirected to the new server location. However the files created in offline mode were disappeared instead of sync with
the new Sharedserever.
I could not figure out why and I don't know if it something with CSC - Client-Side Caching folder ?
Any help would be appreciated.
Regards
Sarwar

Trying to find a solution to this issue.

2 XP Media Center SP3 PCs connected via Ethernet to router. PC A has Shared Documents folder with permissions set to allow 'Everyone' Full Control. Only Windows Firewall onboard, NOD32 virus scanner. PC B can see/open files from share on PC A, but any attempts to move or copy result in error message "your current security settings do not allow this action". Both PCs have IE6, File & Print Sharing enabled and turning off Windows Firewall doesn't change anything. What else can I try? Thanks.
 

Answer:Moving/copying files from shared folder causes error

Make sure you have the permissions set on both the Security tab as well as the Sharing tab.

On the shared folder security permissions, make sure that you go to the Advanced settings and check the box that tells it to replace the permissions on child objects as well.

Hello,
I'm encountering a problem on different computers.
Internet Explorer 11 and Edge are not able to open files from a shared folder located on the same computer.
For example, let's say I typed this "\\10.100.100.10\folder_1\DOC_FILE.doc" on the address bar.
The browser then shows : "This page can't be displayed".
When I display more information, the error "INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND" appears.
I have already tried to uncheck "Enable TCP Fast open" and it is still not working.
It seems like this problem cannot be reproduced on all IE11/EDGE browsers, and can be encountered on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.

For some reason or other I cannot play his music files or copy his music files when trying to access the music1 folder on his desktop.

Hi,

I have shared one folder and in security I added "everyone" and given full permission (full control, write, etc.)

But still I cannot access some pdf files in the folder from another computer. I can open the folder but when I try to open the pdf file I'm getting some permission error. Then I went to the first computer I selected all pdf files >> right click >> properties >> I changed security and added everyone there. Then I could open the pdf files from another computer.

Now the problem is every time when I add some files in the shared folder. I have to select all the files inside and add permission even though the folder itself is given full permission. I wonder why is it so?

Answer:shared folder with full permission cannot access files inside

If the same users access this folder. Add each person individually with Full Control rather then the Everyone Group to the permissions of the folder. Or You can add the users to the Power Users Group. Then allow the Power Users Group to have Full control.

I have about 500 files in several related folders. I need to make a spreadsheet to keep track of testing each of them. Being lazy, I don't want to key in all the names. I once knew how to pick up the names (sort of like cut and paste) so that I coud grab all of them in a folder and drop the list in a spreadsheet.

Any suggestions?

Answer:getting a list of files in a folder

Go to start => run and type
dir /s /b > list.txt
This will create a text file (list.txt) with the names of all those files. It'll also write the complete path but if you want to remove it it's just a matter of replacing c:\xyz\ with nothing in the text file (edit => replace in notepad). You can get more options if you type dir /? in the command prompt window.

There are also freewares out there that will give you more options (perhaps even create an .xls file right away)

52% of the most popular PC applications, including Flash and Java, are out-of-date. People are exposing their PC and their personal data to risks, as malware targets older versions of software to exploit vulnerabilities.

Most outdated programs
Gathered anonymously from 116 million Windows desktop and laptop users, Avast found the most outdated programs include:
Java (Runtime 6,7)
Flash Player (Active X)
Foxit Reader
GOM Media Player
Nitro Pro
WinZip
DivX
Adobe Shockwave Player
7-ZIP
Firefox.
Topping this list of the least updated applications is Java, with more than 24 million people running the outdated versions Java Runtime 6 and 7. And while another 26 million users are on the latest version Java 8, more than 70% haven?t installed the latest update rollout (currently update 121).

This is closely followed by Flash, where 99% of users have yet to update this control for Internet Explorer; and Foxit Reader which sees 92% of users working with an old version of the application.

Conversely, the most up-to-date applications are Google Chrome at 88%; Opera at 84%; and Skype which is 76% up-to-date across the sampled user base, which illustrates that even the programs that auto-update are not necessarily always up-to-date.

Answer:Make list of files in a folder

It's complicated a bit by the fact that the files are in "several" folders, rather than one folder.

Do you have any experience with using the command prompt?

If so, adapt the following DIR command to your situation:

dir c:\Music /b /s > c:\textfile.txt


where "Music" is the folder containing the files and C: is your hard drive. The /s in the above command should pick up all the files in the Music folder and all subfolders.

At a command prompt, navigate to the folder in question and enter the command. The list will be found in the "textfile.txt" file in the root of the C drive.

If you can't use the command prompt, you could also install the Everything search tool and tell it to find all video files with a particular extension. Then just copy the list it shows you with the mouse and paste the list into a Word or text file.

Probably other ways too.

When I try to rename a folder on the D: partition that used to be a Windows XP recovery partition that has some Pokemon commissions in it, I get this message.
"This folder is shared with other people
If you rename this folder, it will no longer be shared."
 
But the folder is not shared nor has it ever been.
 
What is going on? Why does Windows 7 think that it is shared?

Answer:“This folder is shared with other people” when renaming not shared folder

Hello there, 
 
This happens because of the way the Access Control List is queried by Windows Explorer to determine if the folder is shared. Because this folder you tried to rename is a child folder of a parent folder and the two folders have a different security entries, Windows will treat as a shared folder. This causes Explorer to give you the warning that you received. 
 
​Just double check, this must be a shared folder. 
 
Hope this helps!

I am unable to see files on a windows 2003 server after moving files from my desktop running XP. I can see them using internet explorer but not windows explorer or runn the directory command in a Dos window. I am guessing it is a file attribute setting but not sure how to change it.

Answer:Windows Explorer unable to list files in folder

To view or to remove the Read-only or the System attributes of folders in Windows Server 2003 or in Windows XP

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.

2. To view the syntax for the Attrib command, type attrib /? at the command prompt.



If you remove the Read-only or System attribute from a folder, it may appear as a ordinary folder and some customizations may be lost. For example, Windows customizes the Fonts folder and provides a special folder view that permits you to hide variations, such as bold and italic. It also permits you to change the folder's view settings in ways that are specific to fonts. If you remove the Read-only and System attributes of the Fonts folder, these customized view settings are not available. For folders that you have customized by using the Customize tab of the folder's Properties dialog box, the folder icon and other other customizations may be lost when you remove the Read-only attribute.

If a program cannot save files to a folder with the Read-only attribute, such as My Documents, change the Read-only attribute to System by using the Attrib command at a command prompt.

To remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute, use the following command:

attrib -r +s drive:\<path>\<foldername>

For example, to remove the Read-only attribute and to set the System attribute for the C:\Test folder, use the following command:

attrib -r +s c:\test

I have my Public Desktop folder set to share for everyone, so it can be accessed from other pc's on the home network. But when I move a file from my user desktop to the public desktop it suddenly adds the lock icon over it and can't be accessed from another pc, even though the public desktop still can. I have to change the permissions on the file every time, although this never used to be the case. I used to be able to move a file to the public desktop without having to manually "share" it each time.

All settings look correct: Sharing is enabled for the folder and set for full control "everyone", and public folder sharing is turned on.

Again, this just started and was working fine before. Would one of the recent security patches have changed something?

Answer:Files moved to shared public folder "locked"

I'm not sure how this could occur but in order for the Public folders to be shared you need to enable sharing through the Sharing tab of the main Public folder, otherwise anything placed in one of it's subfolders won't be sharable.

If the share is being moved from a folder with a lock then moving that folder to a Public folder won't remove the lock.

The main Public folder is located at the C:\Users\Public and should appear like the picture.

Becoming overwhelmed by folders and files and duplicates and "lost" files &etc as a result of copying and back-up from superseded computers to newer computers.  Want to be able to create list of content of all, or of selected sets of folders/files, and save to desktop or print list of files from selected folders, as required in massive clean-up ahead of me.  In the process, great if can also identify duplicated (backed-up) files.  Thank you.

Hey everyone.

I use both Linux (Ubuntu 10.04, 2.6.33-AMD64) and Windows 7 professional, and sometimes I get a little boggled at the apparent lack of functionality in W7 in the following situation.

I have a network share in the root of my drive that I've called "DropBox" where my boss and I can both put files to be shared via the network. I have a bunch of files in "Downloads" directory that I'd like to be able to share at various times, but would rather not have my downloads directory directly shared as it violates my sense of order. IE, I would much rather have one shared folder from which you can reach all the other content I need to share on the drive, and if I need to un-share something, simply delete the shortcut, and Voila! instant anti-sharing.

Figure 1. Clean Sharing


In Ubuntu, you can create a symlink within a shared folder that points to a non shared folder which allows network users to access that non-shared folder.

Does this functionality exist in W7?

Thanks,
NYTCG

Answer:Shared Shortcut to non-shared folder.

Okay, so I solved this issue on my own =) TGFG! The answer lies in the MKLink command.

Specifically: mklink /D /J Downloads "C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\"

Works like a charm. All networked machines have access to my non-shared directory through the shared folder, and it looks nice and clean on the viewers end.

Thanks for letting me rubber duck this one.

And no amount of free-to-use scanning I have done thus far detected a virus.

Whatever virus this is, it seems to effect the amount of memory I can use slowing down my computer and causing me crashes in Team Fortress 2.

It also disabled my sound driver.

It has yet to do anything more than annoy me from what I can tell, and it may yet be a hacker.

Hi. I have been reading a lot lately about MSN 8's Shared Internet Browsing feature. Well, I am just wondering, is there a free service out there where you can get shared Internet Browsing without switching to MSN 8? Switching is not an option for me. Also, you can only use this feature if the other user is an MSN 8 user too and for my friend to switch is also not an option. Any ideas?

Hello

I just set up a shared internet connection. My desktop computer is connected to internet via ADSL connection which is set shared, and it also has a WLAN card. I'm using ad-hoc mode to connect my laptop to this desktop computer. Both computers has Vista.

Everything works OK, except for one little annoying thing: When browsing internet (no matter which browser) almost every time i click any new link the browser immediately gives the following error:

I?ve built a new computer for my wife and (yeah, I know I?m stupid) installed Win7 on it because been using it (build7100) for a while and it runs smooth, fast and stable.
But I?ve copied all her "old hard drive" work?s files to a flash drive and then copied it to the new Win7 machine.
On the old machine she created files inside a folder and a day later she separed (moved) those files in different sub folders to make them more organized.
But when copied to the new Win7 machine suddenly she noticed that the files now are duplicated, inside the original folder and inside the sub folders. It?s as if the old version of the files (the one that where outside the sub folder) suddenly appeared on the original folder, AND on the sub folders (but obviosly they have differend "modified" date stamp, differing only in one day, as she created and moved those files with one day difference). Hope I?ve made myself enogh clear.....
Thanks in advance!

Answer:HELP! Duplicate (outdated) files appear!

Not sure what to say. It could have been a misclick with the mouse while holding ctrl, there might have been some system restore thingy going on, or something else i cant think of. Have you made sure you have hidden files not shown and the files that she moved are in fact the files and not shortcuts?

Hi, I don't use Homegroup, as I am the only 7 user so far. I got a few Vista and XP users on my home network and just wanted to set up some shared folders on the 7 desktop as I have always done with older Windows versions, had to jump thru some hoops to do it, but finally worked, enabled the shared folder for "everyone" per business as usual, but when I open My Network Places on my XP desktop, I see not only the shared folder on my 7 laptop, but also my user folder on the 7 laptop! How and why is this shared? All I shared was one folder on my desktop, not my entire user folder?? I can mess with any files in there I like, which is, needless to say, kind of dangerous.. Furthermore, I see my boyfriend's Vista user folder showing up as shared in My Network Places also. I also see his public folders, something I can't get to work on 7, but figured I would get around to that sometime, but this user shared folder is freaking me out a bit. I can't see or access any user folders on any XP boxes, why are they showing in 7 and Vista? Would some kind person explain what I am doing wrong?

Answer:User profile shows as shared

I also discovered this today. The full Users folder is shared by default in Win7, it seems.
You can of course un-share the folder. Here's a link to a discussion on the topic:

As the title reads, I have about 40gb of files that I downloaded on an outdated version of Safari and I intend to back them up on one of the hard drives. I'm paranoid that because I downloaded these files on an outdated version of Safari, they might corrupt all the other files on my external hard drive or something. I've done virus scans and the files appear to be fine, but I'm still paranoid. To my knowledge, having an outdated browser does is increase the risk of you getting hacked or something. It has nothing to do with whatever you do on the internet, correct? Is there any problem with my backing up these files on my external hard drive even though I downloaded them on an outdated version of Safari. By the way, these are video, picture, and music files.

Hello guys, I have a problem and some questions for you. Thank you for helping out, your support is very much appreciated.
Here is my case. In August Windows 10 downloaded itself on my system, but without my consent, since I had not reserved it. It then tried to install, but failed. I noticed this anomalous behaviour through Windows Update, where several instances of these failed attempts were recorded. I then decided to disable automatic updates, in order to obtain Windows 10 later at another time, since I was not ready for it yet. And I proceeded to install regular Windows 8.1 updates.
Now, some months later, I feel like the time for trying out Windows 10 has come, but I'm afraid Windows 10 installation files stored months ago in the C:\$Windows.~BT folder may be heavily outdated and thus cause issues. Moreover, in the meantime, people at Microsoft announced the specific problem which was previously determining failures in my upgrade process had finally been addressed and solved over later (more recent) Windows 10 installations.
Now, what should I do to obtain an updated Windows 10 installation package? Will automatic updates, once they're turned on and I have reserved my Windows 10 copy through the apposite tool, just do everything required? Will the old installation files at C:\$Windows.~BT be recognized as outdated and consequently overwritten?
In case I were to use the Media Creation Tool as a last resort in order to upgrade, should I remove the $Window... Read more

Answer:Outdated Windows 10 installation files and upgrade issues

Just download Media Creation Tool.
Image your drive with Macrium Reflect Free before doing anything.
Find your Windows 8.1 key!
If your using Firefox and Thunderbird you can use MozBackup. Also try Ninite to install lots of apps.
At this point you can do an upgrade or do a clean install. Then you can copy your data over. And re-install your apps.
Good luck

I am running into an issue with users renaming files on a shared drive. When the users try to rename, they get the error "A file name can't contain any of the following characters: \ / : * ? < > |". However, neither the new or old filename contains
any of these characters, or any other invalid characters as far as I can determine, just alphanumeric characters and spaces.When they try to rename it again, it works without an issue.
I have found reports of this error being generated if the file path is too long, but all users are accessing this from a shared drive, and even if the share name is taken into account the file path and name are easily under 100 characters.
I have 3 users on 3 different systems reporting this issue, so I don't think it is user error.
The workstations are running Windows 7 Pro, SP1. The server is Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise, Service Pack 2.
The users are located at a remote site, and accessing the share over a site to site VPN. There are XP workstations at the site as well, that do not appear to be having the issue.
Any help, suggestions, or guidance is greatly appreciated!

We are a small company.  We are running six windows 8 computers.  Our secretary works from home, the rest of us are in the same office.   


The Admin Computer stores all of our work files within a folder called 'casework' (about 400GB).   The 'casework' folder is shared on the office network.  This 'casework' folder is also synced by Google Drive. 


When our secretary works on her home computer and makes a new file, e.g. letterV2, the new file downloads to our 'casework' folder to the Admin Computer here at the office.  However, the new file cannot been seen on our other computers over the office
network.

The newly created files are not shared to 'everyone' unless I un-share 'casework' from the network and then share 'casework' again. 


The problem seems to be that the new files added by Google Drive are not inheriting the permissions of the 'casework' folder. 


There are no options to change in Google Drive.  Is this a Windows8 problem? Will Windows10 have a fix for this? Are there any work arounds? Does our secretary need to work at the office?

Yours Hopefully

Matt

Answer:New files downloaded from cloud storage into shared folders don't inherit shared permissions for "Everyone"

I have a shared exchange enviroment i'm maintianing.

The users are all listed in the Global Address List (GAL), so all 10 companies can see all contacts.

Under ADSIedit.msc, I've edited the value "showinaddressbook" to be each users respective Offline Address book like so:





CN=(value of address book),CN=All Address Lists,CN=Address Lists Container,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=btc,DC=localClick to expand...

where (value of address book) = the company address book I created under Organiztion Configuration > Mailbox
Then I created an offline address book to point to this.

I did for each single user, and it's worked like a charm!

Now, all users have a blank GAL. Because the default address book is the GAL, and everyone is just listed in their company address book.

How do I set a users default address book? I can set "company 1" as the default or "company 2" or "company 3" as the default through exchange management console. But I need to do this on a per user basis, because everyone will have a default GAL based on company name. I can't have 10 default address books, and I can't have everyone seeing all the contacts.

I need user 1 to see company 1, and user 2 to see company 2

How can I do this?

Let me know if you figure out a solution. GAL isn't too important for me, so I just disabled everyone from showing up. Never used 2007 but in 2010 there's a checkbox in ESM to disable it without having to edit LDAP manually.
