    Default Viewing files on XP PCs, on a LAN

    Bugger MS security.

    I need to backup data onto the other PCs 2-3times a day and they backup onto the other two.

    Previous to this we ran Win98 on all PCs only recently changing PCs and OS to XP. We had no trouble running DOS batch files carry out the backups.

    No matter how I configure the other two PCs on our LAN, the following day I cannot see the files on the other PCs.

    Im told XP security is to blame.

    Any idea how to get over this hassle?

    Thanks.............John in Mosgiel.

    I use Syncback and mapped network drives for XP and it works fine.

    What exactly are you doing?

    I use SmartSync Pro to back up automatically between the main PC (XP Pro), a laptop (ditto) and another PC on the WLAN (XP Home). No problems apparent.

    Have you got a "user" with accounts (identical username/password) on all the machines? That is "often" necessary.

    You get this sort of thing when you go from no security to half-arsed security.
