I'm trying to share -everything- on an XP Pro machine with both another XP Pro and a XP Home machine. Thing is, Pro doesn't allow sharing of 'Program Files' and indivudual user folders in the 'Documents and Settings' folder.

What gives? I want all my save games and documents easily transferred without wasting a CD.

sharing document by microsoft

Note this paragraph:
Note The Sharing option is not available for the Documents and Settings, Program Files, and Windows system folders. In addition, you cannot share folders in other users’ profiles.

Try also creating another folder, perhaps under the root directory, and sharing it. Check your permissions and allow the user "EVERYONE" at least full read access. You may also need to look at the Security tab which is next to the sharing tab, and also define the user "EVERYONE" as having read access.

IIRC, the way I solved this problem was by temporarily disabling simple file sharing (Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Advanced Settings) and setting some manual permissions for the aforementioned folders. Once I saw that it worked, I turned simple file sharing back on.

I would permanently turn off simple file sharing. Just like how most people like to custom build their PCs because of options and control, it's better to control the security on your PC yourself and gives yourself more options if you have multiple users.

sorry about the late reply but this is a good update.. I didn't know about the simple file sharing switch, so I looked for it and actually found it unchecked.

So I checked use simple file sharing, then shared the folder I wanted, and now I can see it.
