    Hi,

    I have got a problem with a small workgroup. The D Drive is shared at the root on the main pc running xp pro. All users have account setup on main pc and have been able to access all folders no problem. All pc's are running xp pro.

    To the boss can logon to Sage, the data folder being on the D Drive but when he tries to open the company shared dounments folder he get the following.

    xxxxxxx is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Access is denied.

    I have check all security settings, you can ping the main pc, the other 2 members of staff can open the shared docs folder no problem. Have tried to remap drive. Restarted both pc's twice. I can't understand how can access other shared folders on D Drive but not shared data?

    Any suggestions would be greatfuly received.

    Regards

    Has the bosses' account password on the target machine expired or has he changed his password on his own machine recently?

    So if its a workgroup, I guess you are sharing the folder using an identical username on the "server" PC as your boss uses on his workstation?

    If so, has your Boss changed his password on his own workstation recently?

    Might just be an idea to trash the share and recreate it for all.

    May take less time in the end.

    Have you checked both ntfs and share permissons?
    Permissons are are set at the root of the D Drive and he can get access to all folders apart from shared docs.

    Have you tried switching off simple file sharing
    Simple file sharing is switched off, Sharing is Full control, Security is upto Modify.

    How big is the workgroup.
    Workgroup is 4 users and the cost of a server is to high for them.

    I guess you are sharing the folder using an identical username on the "server" PC as your boss uses on his workstation?
    Yes all users have a user account on server pc same as their own logon on there pc.

    Might just be an idea to trash the share and recreate it for all.
    Will do this tomorrow.

    Thank you for all your help
