Thanks for the tip about sharing the root of a drive. I wanted to point out though that the root of each drive is already shared if you have file sharing turned on in vista. You don't have to manually share a drive's root. For example, the share name for C: is C$, the D: drive uses the share name D$, etc. I found this out in the computer management window. I have attached a screen shot of what my window shows to illustrate where I found this. I am currently only sharing a printer. I'm not sharing any folders, but as you can see, the root of each drive on my computer is shared already. I have only one hard drive but it has two partitions, C: which has the operating system and D: which I store my files on.
