    Question Share goes away when computer restarts

    Ok, heres the problem. I have 2 systems, they both have shared drives. Now I've justed added a removable disk drive to the 1st machine. When I share the drive letter associated with it, i have problems. The 2nd computer can "see" the share, but its not accessible. And when you restart the first computer the drive is no longer shared. Any ideas why this is happening???

    What OS are you using?
    Also you stated that it's a removable drive. Under some OS's you must have media in the drive when it's polled for the share or the drive reports not ready and the share fails.

    Ok, both systems are running Win98 2nd. And it loses the sharing on the computer with the drive. Just changes it back to a regular drive

    Sounds like you need a good FDISK
