I've just setup a new user account with admin rights in Vista for my Girlfriend to use her own email, setup etc. I want to share my pictures, music & documents from my user account and i also want the same files & folders to show in her user account. I've tried sharing the folders but they're only accessible from the 'network' link which i don't want. I don't want to copy the folders to her account either as this just a waste of space and the same goes for moving/copying the folders to the public folder. Is there anyway to do it so we have equal access to the folders i specify without copying?
Thanks

If she is administrator on the computer she can just use windows explorer to
browse to where you have them saved in your profile within the "users"
folder.

Or you can create a folder on the C drive, move your pictures there and she
can access the with no special setup.

Open Vista's Help and Support and type Share Files in the Search box and
press the Enter key. Then click on the topic titled "Share Files with
someone".
