Hi there, I recently received my new iMac, and ofcourse wanted to share a public folder with my Windows 7 laptop, and vice versa. So, in OS X Lion, I checked File Sharing, and the folder "Public", under my User(my name) folder, was succesfully shared. However, through Windows 7, I could not only see the shared public folder, but also the iMac's full User(my name) folder and Macintosh HD folder, with all their contents. Obviously, I don't want any other PC to see these two main folders. I haven't found an option to disable this, or a solution via Google search, hence this thread. So, what's shared now (accessible via Windows pc): /Users/(my name)/Public /Users/(my name) Volume Macintosh HD Under the File sharing settings, it only shows the folder "Public map of (my name)", with the correct restrictions. Why does OS X Lion automatically share everything?
