    Advanced Sharing For Some Folder, And Not For Others...


    Hello,

    There is an option stating that there is Advanced Sharing (under the Share tab) for some folders, and not for others (Look at the picture).
    If I click on the Advanced sharing... link, it shows me that folder's Properties.
    What is this all about? That doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

    Let me say why this bothers me... Some folders' view settings that I have customized tend to always randomly keep resetting. How do I permanently get rid of this annoyance bull****.

    Please provide examples of which folder you don't see the advanced sharing option for.


    The "Advanced Sharing" button you see there is a shortcut to the sharing tab of the folder properties. Which is where you can configure the ability to share files over your network. It has nothing to do with your folder view settings.

    I cannot find the folder/folders at this moment in time, they all show the Advanced Sharing setting.
    The 'Advanced Sharing' is what led me to suspect that the folder view settings are being reset to the default view settings.
    I am not changing anything in the computer at all, and this is happening a LOT. It's rather frustrating, and I really want to Know what is causing this, not just solve the issue.
