Hello guys, I just set up a new rig for my brother it it has two user accounts. One for him & one for his wife, we put all the family pictures in his profile and then I added his wife to the folder as a shared person with read/write access. However when I log into her profile she has no pictures, she can't see the photos in her husbands profile? Did I do something wrong? How do I get HIS pictures to also show up in HER profile? Thank you! =)

BTW: Windows 7 Home Premium

Just so things are clear..

The path to his stuff is...

c:\users\him

and her's is

c:\users\hers

All you did was gave her access to the folder. This does not snyc files or change the path of one particular folder.

You could though just create a shortcut to the folder and place it in her my documents folder.

In all truthfullness..I have no idea why you're setting up separate user accounts for each of them... At some point, they'll just want one account or you'll get an extra roomate as a result of the big D

What if you put the pictures and other "shared" content on a separate hard drive? then both users can see the separate drive, and it's contents when signed in, perhaps?

Yes, the external HDD would work, but this process should be much easier than that? I mean why is it so hard to share a file on one profile so ALL the profiles have access to it?

in that case, the shortcut method mentioned earlier would probably be easiest, without the need for buying anything, or using extra hardware.

You did share it though....just don't expect files to magically appear in another profile.

If you went to c:\users\<his account name>\documents\my pcitures, you'd find them. Same would go with the public location if you use that instead.
