Sharing a folder in Leopard gives full access to Vista?

    I've shared a folder in Leopard (iTunes music folder) so that I can listen to the music through the network on my HTPC that has Vista installed.

    Anyhow, when I connect to my MacBook instead of just showing the iTunes Music folder it shows everything, like my MacBook harddrive and my external MyBook harddrive and I can browse it and everything.

    Why is that?

    Because when you log in using your user name and password it shows you (the main user and therefore administrator) everything that you have access to (everything).

    If you're worried about security, there are a few ways that you can get around this, like using the Shared folder for your music... but unless you want to do that I won't go into it now.

    Or you could open up iTunes in Windows, and access your music that way.
