    Shared Folders Include Users Folder

    When I open Network in Win 7 or 8 the list of shared folders on my computer includes the Users Folder. I open Properties for the Users Folder and make it "Not Shared" but the next time I open Network the Users Folder is listed again. How can I stop this happening?

    Hi Roderunner, thanks but SkyDrive does not allow enough storage space for the size of my shared folders.

    On a personal note, your use of the word didny brings back fond memories of the time my family were evacuated to Kirkconnell (hope I've spelled that correctly) in 1941. (Showing my age). It was a lovely friendly village then, mostly inhabited by coal mining families, with beautiful countryside surrounding it, and a crystal clear trout stream where I used to catch small trout with a mutton cloth from the local butcher. The trout were grilled and tasted wonderful. Happy days.

    Regards, Roy

    You must have been one of the people who missed the free upgrade to 25gb (I've got 2) for SkyDrive.
    Never visited Kirkconnell but have tasted brown trout many moons ago.
