    I have set up a network between my Desktop XP and my Laptop vista. I can access all of the files on the XP from the vista but only some of the files on the Vista from the XP.

    How do I get to the files on the C drive on vista machine from my desktop XP machine?

    I have shared the whole C drive on the vista machine with no password.

    When I try to access it using the Desktop Xp machine I ge: C is not accessible.
