    I put Windows 8 on a great number of machines now, but I am having issues accessing C drives on each. I use the same username/password on each machine and have advanced sharing enabled. I have shared out the C drive (since administrative shares are now a bust) and can only access the drives on certain machines, mainly 1 machine I upgraded form Windows 7 to Windows 8, but I can access the other drives on this machine. Any ideas?

    I know you say you have advanced sharing enabled, but just to be clear: on each PC you're having the problem on, have you made sure that Network Discovery is turned on?

    I was able to remedy the issue temporarily by adding *everyone* to the share permissions on the C Drive but I don't like the idea of that long term. Any other ideas?

    Yes I have that on, I can ping and connect to the base computer, but when I click the C share I get access denied.
