    Hi Guys.

    Nothing posted here has even come close to helping resolve the issue of accessing network shares on a Windows 8 x64 client box.

    Specifically, I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8 Enterprise x64 on my Compaq Presario 3650L, creating a dual-boot to Windows 7 Professional x64 environment. Now I am unable to access any of my external drives via our network. Any of the 3 partitions on the local drive, C$, D$ & E$, are accessible from anywhere on our network, but not any of the externals.

    I have tried numerous solutions found on many different tech websites, i.e. resetting inheritable permissions, Sharing=Nobody>Sharing=Selected Network Users, device>Properties>Sharing>Advance>Sharing device>adding Everyone=All, etc., all without any success.

    How is it that the 3 local partitions can be accessed via network shares but none of the external drives even if they are shared by device as well as selected folders?

    Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

    Regards,

    Cole
