The only think I can suggest is to try to share from the root of the folder
Go to C: then Documents and Settings/Properties and share this folder.
I tried that. And no, nothing was encrypted.
I am trying to access this from the laptop while searching the virtual restored image using Acronis TrueImage, so anything I am doing is set up from the external backup drive from one compressed image file.
I run TrueImage, I log in, then it goes to the external hard drive and shows the image files with complete descriptions and dates. I can select any image, and the program attaches it as a new (virtual) drive with a new drive letter, so I can navigate it just like any other attached drive.
The plan was to take an image of the whole drive, not just docs and settings, then do a clean install of Xp Pro and any applications from installation disks. So all I would need to do is copy back docs, favorites, etc, and anything else I had stashed on the old drive, other than apps.
Everything is accessable except my personal docs and settings, including other (non-admin) users.
A possible workaround occured to me this morning. I have both the original image I am trying to access now, and a later one I took after the fresh Xp install was done.
I could reinstall the old image, login to my old account, then make sure c:\Documents and Settings\My Name\ is shared out in advance. Then save a new image of either the whole drive, or just docs and settings with the new perimissions granted, then reinstall the fresh Xp installation image, and continue from there.
First I am going to check out a couple of other Microsoft KB resources, including the one that was suggested by the person who posted after mine and just prior to yours'.
Wish me luck! I need it. If you think of anything else before I reinstall from the old image, save a new one, then reinstall from the fresh image (do I have all that straight?) , any suggestions are appreciated.
