I can access 99% of the folders fine (they've gotten shared perfectly fine when adding them to HomeGroup Shared). Yet the odd one keeps giving me Windows cannot access\\gamingrigii\d\Backups\All Pictures\House Pictures. Because Windows 7 isn't adding it to the HomeGroup for sharing (when I added the main All Pictures to the HomeGroup Share).

It just doesn't make sense. I can't figure out why the other 590 folders get added fine, yet there are a few that won't get added to the HomeGroup sharing. In order to get into these odd folders. I have to first come across the problem folder and then manually add it to the homegroup share.

Anyone else had this issue and or know about this problem? And is there a easy fix?
I've had the same problem when sharing with homegroup. Not sure if it's an option for you or not, but I now always share with "everyone".
