    I recently had a computer that crashed and had to be rebuilt. Now that it is back up and running, Im having problems with mapping network drives. Specifically, two maps that were previously working.

    If I go to my network places, all of the shares are present from all computers. I can get into all of them, except for two, both on the same computer. (on a windows XP pro) (the rebuild is also windows xp pro)

    \\computer1\apps is not accessible. you may not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is Denied.

    I checked the folders, both show access to everyone. I can access them from another computer. Simple file sharing is turned off on all computers. I can ping all computers, and vice versa. Netbios over TCP/IP is enabled on all computers.

    any ideas?

    let me know if you need more information, I can get whatever is needed.

    Have you checked the firewall settings? Check it on the PC's you are not able to access the drive mapping.

    On the computer that you are trying to connect TO, do you have the same user account and password as the computer you are trying to connect FROM.

    I had checked it earlier, and the account was correct, but as it turns out it was not an admin login - switched it up and were runnin!
