    Cannot access C Drive from MAC


    Hello, I have an HP elite 64 bit on Windows Pro. I also have an Imac 64 bit etc.

    I used to be able to access my c drive from the imac, now I cannot. It says I cannot access the folder because of permissions. I have full control to all, and I have all sharing turned on in Windows and the Mac. What could be causing this if the drive is shared? Like I said, I used to be able to do it fine, I can see it and there are certain files within the c drive I CAN access but nothing that I NEED to access. What is accessible now is more "public". I can see and access my externals as well it is just the C drive that is tossing the error.
