    Hi all,

    I have 2 desktop pcs, both running XP Pro SP2, both have HDDs partitioned into multiple partitions. Have DSL modem from Verizon hooked to a WRT54G router from Linksys.
    Modem is wired to router, router is WIRED to both pcs.
    Both pcs can connect to internet fine!

    Have previously set up folder/partition sharing on both pcs and all worked fine!
    All of a sudden I can not access pc1 (rln-1),(Dell 8100 PC), folders/partitions from pc2 (ACER-2005), but I can access pc2 folders/partitions from pc1.
    I get the attached error message when trying to access pc1 from pc2.

    pc1 has a password needed when first logging on. I have tried to get rid of it but the pc1 at logon, still comes up and asks me for a password! Don't know why this happens! pc2 skips logon screen and just starts Windows!

    I am at a loss for how to get file/partition sharing back to working and wud greatly appreciate any and all help!!
    Thank you very much!
    Sincerely,
    Cindy ;>)

    the bottom of that dialogue seems to say you don't have enough storage on the PC that is sharing. Try deleting unnecessary files

    blakcshadow & TerryNet,

    The pc2 has 512MB while the pc1 has only 256MB of RAM.
    If I am able to access and copy files etc. from & to pc2 using pc1 (which is not a 'server' just a plain pc) I don't understand how
    there is not enough storage on pc2 and exactly what files I shud delete??

    Would not the same problem hold true if I was accessing pc2 from pc1, there is still the same amount of storage available on pc2?

    Tnx again.

    Cin

    If you have the same problem on pc2 you will get the same "Not enough server storage is available to process this command." There is no guarantee that a given IRPStackSize that works on one machine will work on another.

    Windows XP is based on Windows NT; the IRPStackSize increase seldom fails to fix this problem in XP.

    I don't know whether blakcshadow knows more about this than I do or simply misread the error message. :)
