http://serverfault.com – Basically I have the SAME problem as another user. I read his attempts to get a reply that made sense. But he seemed to get everything but what he asked for. I hope I have better luck. SETUP> 1: windows server 2008 r2 X64 NO DOMAIN Only WORKGROUP installed roles for file sharing and IIS as needed and as setup on Previous Windows Server 2008 R1. 2: Clients: ALL Laptops running Windows 7 x64 usually Home Premium but some Pro. Not that I have been able to tell it matters. The server hosts 3 shared items. a: folders shared individually by each user under a subfolder called "remotes" (HowTos)
