Hello there everyone

This is my first post so please be gentle.

We are currently using Windows XP and SP3 and we have suddenly come across a problem when trying to create shares on new laptops to copy over peoples old data. We can create the folder fine and and users and permissions but as soon as i click on accept i get the following message

An Error occured with trying to create share - the data is invalid

I have tried everything, removing SP3, modify the GPEDIT and giving all users full control yet still nothing. Does anyone have a ideas - ITS DRIVING ME NUTS :mad:

Have you checked that the Server and Computer Browser services are at Automatic and Started?

Do you have Simple File Sharing turned on (Folder Options => View)? If not, try turning it on and see if it works. Alternatively, if it's turned off, try giving Permissions to Everyone, with at least Read permission.
