    Dear Experts

    I have got my work laptop (windows 7) that was configured to access a domain work.

    When I log in to my laptop the username that was assigned to me is like that : country\d50001122,,,,,,,,made it up and password is : forum

    When I am at home I want to backup my work from the laptop to a network drive on my home desktop computer (called storage1).

    On my desktop computer I tried to create a username d50001122 ( I removed the country with slash) and with same domain password.

    Then I enabled the sharing and the security on my home drive.

    I tried from my laptop to access that drive but error message pops us :

    Did i miss something ? is that error because of user is a domain user ?

    have you contacted your net admin?

    Just as an FYI, about 4 months ago we let go a very senior person in my company for doing exactly what you are doing. He got tagged for theft, as well as a SOX violation. So unless you have express written permission to take work home ESPECIALLY IT work, I'd be very, very leery.
