    Well I know that on a Mac, if you click on the item once and then go to "Get Info" you can change the user access. I am not sure if there is something similar on PC, but I am thinking you probably have to change the permissions of the files on the PC. Hope you can figure it out.

    The easiest way is to have the same username and password between your Mac and your Windows PC.

    Hmm, that's weird, usually it'll "just work" if that's the case :confused:

    Are you an administrator on Windows?
