    I got Win7 on both my laptop on PC.
    I set the network, and computers see each other
    but, when I try to access the shared drive, I'm getting this message: Image 1324847505-clip-35kb.png

    My user permission set like this: Image 1324847635-clip-25kb.png

    I do able to access to "users" folder on each PC. I compared the permissions, and they look the same.

    Any idea what might be wrong?

    You should be able to share a drive as well as a folder. Some people (for reasons unknown) had trouble sharing a drive with Vista. Maybe some people are suffering a similar problem with Windows 7. How to Share the Root of a Drive Under Vista may help with your Windows 7 issue. Don't be put off by his first three paragraphs of ranting; he does get to the issue.
