    Hi all,

    Im trying to find specific info on whether you can share folders with vista basic. looking round at the MS vista site the compare products doesnt really give me the specifics, just all the lovely marketing fluff.

    I am not sure mate but it could be the same as XP home where you can't do certain things.

    Yes looking at the website it says that you can do stuff with photos and wotnot so im assuming that you might be able to share files in one way or another, its a shame technet direct doesnt give you access to all the versions of vista so you can find out what its all about first hand.
