    Selective sharing


    My wife and I each have Vista Home 32bit laptops which are securely networked through a wireless router. Utilizing our private network, were are able to share and sync files and folders. However, when I configure our folders to be shared, the lists of people to share with do not include each other's computers. Therefore, I opt to share with "Everyone."

    While this configuration is suitable for our secured home network, it will not be acceptable for the network I will soon be accessing as part of my MBA program. The files we share are private and though I do want to be able to share files and folders with my classmates, I do not want the personal folders I share with my wife made available over the class network.

    How can I add a networked computer to my shared list so that I can set permissions only for that computer to access my files? Also, am I correct in my understanding that if I enable file sharing over the school's network, any folder which is enabled to share with "Everyone" will be made publicly available?

    In this case, you should create the same username on both computer and
    assign permissions accordingly. Also remember to remove the everyone from
    the sharing and security.

    Hi
    A simple solution is to open new folders that are not under the public
    sharing and set their permissions as you wish.
