    I think Windows 7 is great but this stupid Homegroup is driving me crazy.
    Opps I did it again, I did something to the Homegroup that lost me all my
    access to my second drive D:\

    This is what I want to do:
    Share all Files & Folders on D:\ with any computer on the network except My
    Documents, My Pictures, My Music and My Videos (which are stored on D:\)
    with no password needed to access the drive, but would still like my Media
    Extenders to access Pictures, Music and Video's
    I had it working once before, but in My Network Places on XP machines still
    show My Documents, My Pictures, My Music and My Videos but will not allow
    access which is a good thing and D:\ being shared allows access to files and
    folders on that drive.

    I hope you can understand where I am coming form

    Cheers
