Re: [WIN8] Homegroup question

said by dave:

One way that has worked since NT 3.1:

1) Use the same usernames and passwords throughout.

2) Don't use "homegroups" [yes, I genuinely didn't use homegroups in NT 3.1: they did not exist]

3) If the "simple file sharing" option still exists, turn it off. Simple file sharing is too complicated.

1) Yes that is what I do.
2) Yes that is what I do.
3) Yes it certainly is.

In my first reply I was mistaken. There is NO Private setting in 7 as there was in XP. You'll need to do it with either encryption or permissions.
