    I need to share files from one Vista machine to another over a wireless network on a daily basis. I have been able to do so, but only when the files being shared are in the "Public" folder. Unfortunately, the files I want to share are not in the "Public" folder. The purpose of the share is to make a daily backup of the files on a separate computer.

    Thanks for any help and suggestions you can make.

    when you right click the folder that you are wanting to share, instead of pressing share, go to properties select the sharing tab and then press the advanced sharing, tick the box and then press the permissions button to select the permissions u want to set, then press of to everything and this should work if i have understood what you are wanting to do.
