Ok, so I decided it can't be that hard to do this with just 2 pc's on my home network. I mapped my own drives no problem, that is, I mapped my drives on my own pc so I basically had 2 icons for a single drive. However, this is pretty pointless and it's not what I intended on doing. Anyway, my problem is this: On the laptop I can't get access to the Network place "home" which I created. So when I try to map to a drive on my pc, I can't actually view the pc to begin with. I also can't view the drives on the laptop (they've all been set to share). I decided I would try booting in safe mode on the laptop with Admin account and low and behold I can map the drives from pc to laptop and laptop to pc no problem. The main user on the laptop is set to Administrator anyway so it's not admin rights or anything - I think. Any ideas?
