Help: Inadvertantly deleted Microsoft Shared folder

Q: Help: Inadvertantly deleted Microsoft Shared folder

While getting rid of Malware, with help from the Security Forum, I inadvertantly deleted the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared" folder. This was totally my fault but I need to try and restore this somehow.

Microsoft Office no longer works now as well as some of the Windows XP functions.

I am trying to locate my CDROMs for both WindowsXP Home Edition and Microsoft Office Proffesional. (This may take a while) I assume that I will need both of these to get it back working.

I also had a problem with the my CD/DVD ROM drives but I have them working again.

Looking through my Document File "Alpha Address List"I accidently replaced the file with a Blank File of the same name . When I tried to open it there was nothing in there. I looked in the Recycle bin there were no files in there at all. Where had it gone ? How could I find it and restore it?

I believe I made a grave error next as I went into the Recovery Programme and picked a recovery point which was 4 or 5 days back from the day my "Alpha Address List" file went missing. When the restore had been completed I looked at the "Alpha Address File" and just a blank copy of that was there.

I realise now that all the recovery programme did was restore the Windows System Files and not the Office 10 personal document "doc" files.

It may be a lost cause now but is there any way I can retrieve the "Alpha Address List" file back .

Any assistance wiould be appreciated

Hello there.

I've been using this office computer for more than 2 years ago.It has win98 second edition. And it's slow,so what I think was it has viruses,so I uninstalled the old antivirus[think it was mcafee] and added AVG free edition.

It's look always like this in the same folders,other are from other places on the pc.

I have all 4 PC's in the office using Windows 7 Pro. I have one computer that is designated to house my share folder for scanning documents and attaching them to our management system.  We are finding that multiple problems occur - not at once and at
different times .  Sometimes, the document within the shared folder called "IMAGEBATCH" will not delete.  Sometimes that document deletes, and then re-appears within the IMAGEBATCH folder.  Sometimes the document will not
scan through the network to the IMAGEBATCH folder.  Sometimes we get an error saying we "don't have permission to delete this file".  These circumstances occur on all computers, including the computer that houses the original file IMAGEBATCH. 
Sometimes in the day, each computer that is supposedly looking at the same IMAGEBATCH folder see different files.
Restarting the computer clears the problems, but then start right back up at irregular intervals, sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the middle of the day.
I did find a duplicate file named IMAGEBATCH on the "C" drive of that PC, so I deleted that, but the symptoms are still there.  This is the only shared folder in our entire network.  What can I be missing?  I have checked to make

When I try to rename a folder on the D: partition that used to be a Windows XP recovery partition that has some Pokemon commissions in it, I get this message.
"This folder is shared with other people
If you rename this folder, it will no longer be shared."
 
But the folder is not shared nor has it ever been.
 
What is going on? Why does Windows 7 think that it is shared?

A:“This folder is shared with other people” when renaming not shared folder

Hello there, 
 
This happens because of the way the Access Control List is queried by Windows Explorer to determine if the folder is shared. Because this folder you tried to rename is a child folder of a parent folder and the two folders have a different security entries, Windows will treat as a shared folder. This causes Explorer to give you the warning that you received. 
 
​Just double check, this must be a shared folder. 
 
Hope this helps!

Hello everyone,

I'm using a laptop (with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed) as a DVR and media streamer to all other devices in the house.
My TV recordings are recorded into a temporary folder and when the recording is finished the program moves the files into the My Videos folder.

The My Videos folder is shared so we can watch the recordings from the Xbox downstairs or other Windows 7 devices in the house.
This worked pretty well in the past but for some reason new recordings (or downloads) aren't shared by default anymore. All files have a small lock icon (shared with nobody) and I have to manually share new files within an already shared folder.

This is pretty annoying and takes away the convenience.

I would appreciate any tip to fix this problem to have all files in the shared folder(s) shared by default.

Thanks in advance!

A:New files aren't shared in shared folder

It's easy once you know how, just right click the C:/Video's folder and choose properties, Security tab then Advanced button, then just put a check mark where it says "Replace all Child Object Permission Entries with Inheritable Permissions Entries from this Object, then hit Apply, OK....this will fix the problem you described.

Hey everyone.

I use both Linux (Ubuntu 10.04, 2.6.33-AMD64) and Windows 7 professional, and sometimes I get a little boggled at the apparent lack of functionality in W7 in the following situation.

I have a network share in the root of my drive that I've called "DropBox" where my boss and I can both put files to be shared via the network. I have a bunch of files in "Downloads" directory that I'd like to be able to share at various times, but would rather not have my downloads directory directly shared as it violates my sense of order. IE, I would much rather have one shared folder from which you can reach all the other content I need to share on the drive, and if I need to un-share something, simply delete the shortcut, and Voila! instant anti-sharing.

Figure 1. Clean Sharing


In Ubuntu, you can create a symlink within a shared folder that points to a non shared folder which allows network users to access that non-shared folder.

Does this functionality exist in W7?

Thanks,
NYTCG

A:Shared Shortcut to non-shared folder.

Okay, so I solved this issue on my own =) TGFG! The answer lies in the MKLink command.

Specifically: mklink /D /J Downloads "C:\Users\Robert\Downloads\"

Works like a charm. All networked machines have access to my non-shared directory through the shared folder, and it looks nice and clean on the viewers end.

Thanks for letting me rubber duck this one.

I often move files between the two computers by placing folders on the desktops and then working with them or moving them to specific folders. The network for my laptop lists its desktop folder, but for the desktop PC, the topline \Users root folder is listed, not the desktop. Network and sharing work just fine.

Hello MilesAhead,I'm not absolutely sure, but some of the phrases in your problem description seem to indicate that this might be a variation of the "XP + mouse movement + mouse buttons + keyboard keystrokes" behavior described in the following post.

However I have noticed that all of the deleted files are still showing on the shared device. For example the tv show Alphas, I downloaded a couple of episodes to check it out, watched the first one and was not impressed and deleted both files off of the hard drive. But when I connect any device to watch something its still there. How do I get rid of those types of "ghost files" completely? Sorry in advance if I put this in the wrong area.

I am using Windows XP Professional SP2. I recently lost my shared folder shortcuts under the my computer window. I can navigate to it through c:/documents and settings etc. but for some reason theres no shortcuts to it anywhere else on this computer. I even reformatted and reinstalled and still the same issue. What would make it disappear like that? Is there some quick fix I could do such as copying some sort of registry entry from another PC that would restore back to where its supposed to be by default? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Chris

Hi all

I have just upgraded to Win 7 from Vista and have a shared network folder set up on the PC.

Now that I have upgraded I can still see the shared folder from my other PC (XP) on the network but not from my now Win 7 PC which is where the folder actually is!

I have searched for files in the shared folder but comes up with nothing.

Anyone else have this issue...know a fix?

Many thanks

Darren

If you are running homegroup you need to change it. Homegroup is for win 7 machines only and it uses IPv6. For networks with mixed environments workgroup is a better alternative. to test for yourself create a new network connection using workgroup and if it works disable Ipv6 and kill homegroup

I am a local administrator on this domain member Windows 7 Professional computer. When I try to share a folder, I get the message "Your folder can't be shared". The folder is on a local USB-attached drive. That is all the message says; it does not provide
any further details whatsoever. Also, I cannot seem to find a KB article pertaining to this issue. Very frustrating. Any help would be very much appreciated!
TIA,

A:Your folder can't be shared.

Hi Sam, you can try enabling file sharing in the network properties:
Network and Sharing Center -> Click the current connection -> Status -> Properties
Make sure that "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" is checked.Sean Zhu - MSFT

Does anyone know if OE6 will supprt the use of a shared network folder to use as a message store. Ie. So that anyone on our LAN can access the Inbox of a specific account??

If OE6 does not support this feature, what is the workaround? Creating a local IMAP account or maybe using thunderbird instead?

any help would be appreciated
 

A:LAN shared folder with OE6??

Hi dalani

Creating an Imap account would probably be the best way to go.
I don't have any information on Thunderbirds's capabilities regarding sharing.

I have a desktop and a laptop computer. They are hookup in a home network with my desktop acting as server. Each computer has a shared folder which contains the files that I want to be able to access from either computer. On my desk top I can access my shared folder just fine, but my lap top I get an error message stating shared folder is misspelled. I check and it is spelled correctly. I ran the diagnose that came with the message with no results. Please help and thank you in advance.

I have NT as does the other computer in my office. We have been sharing files for months, and something has happened that is now preventing me from accessing the other computer. Windowns Firewall and AV is turned off, as we use a router. I can go to the other computer and confirm that the folders I need access to are shared and can be edited by others. I return to my computer and when I try to browse to that folder get the following: "\\server\foldername is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin... Not enough server storage is available to process this command." Both computers have lots of memory and disk space.

(This is my first posting... be gentle.)

A:A shared folder isn't available that use to be

Should be a security tab when you right-click on a folder. You may have to be logged as an administrator or in safe mode to access it. Check that permissions are correctly allowed for the other account.

I'm not 100% certain about this since I've never used NT, if I'm wrong... be gentle

Hi ,
We have NT 4 server w/ Win98 desktops.
I am attempting to go paperless.
I would like to create a shared folder that will allow my
students to drop their assignemnts into it , but not allow
them to open the folder or see/opne the other files, thus allowing them to acces the
other student's files.
I have tried (on the NT server)giving the students:
1. Add: write & execute (WX)
2. Add & Read: read, write & execute (RWX)

I have also tried sharing from a Win98 desktop.

Sometime I can access the folder on the desktop but not via an app (i.e.Word)
What I end up with is either a folder they can't access
or a folder that they can get to everything.

I rememebr setting up a "Drop box" many years ago with
Apple share.
How do I do this with NT 4 or Win 98?
Thanks.
Bob
