    Why is sharing so hard on windoze???

    I have tried everything I could find to get this to work. Seems like renaming the user in 7 has caused the problem. Sharing works fine on a new user that I created but will not work on the renamed account. I even tried this


    with no joy.

    I would like to keep all the settings in the non sharing renamed account. Can it be copied into a new account then deleted or fixed?
