    We have windows nt for our network. I have win 95 on my pc. Although, on network server, my name has access to the specific server drive and shown as full access to files, i cannot access from my pc. Keep getting error message: "Access to the specified device, path or file is denied." I can only access files on my c:\ and some files from other drives on network. Please help!!!

    Is the NT server a Domain controller or a standalone server? If DC, then you need an account in the domain. If a standalone you need an account on the server. Otherwise you could enable the guest account, but that is not recommended. Also, make sure that permissions are set for sub-folders as well. If your problems persist, you can create a new sharename for the folder/partition and set the permisions for that. Hope this helps.
