I followed the instructions on this link, https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-7/share-files-and-printers-between-windows-7-and-xp/

My confusion is this.

I set up a new workgroup on my Windows 7 Network.
I can see the workgroup on my XP Pro PC.
I can only access the folder named "users" in the Windows 7 Network. I cannot access the other folders that are shared via the Windows 7 Homegroup. I can see them, but I get the error message "\\xyz\c is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.......Access is denied.
Should I be able to access the other shared folders from my XP Pro? Or am I only permitted access to the "users" folder in Win 7 Pro?
