It stopped working about 2 month ago all of a sudden. Reinstalled win 10, changed shared folder to HDD, all the same. No programs were installed

Steps: I open the folder, click Properties - Sharing - Share... - then add users to share with, choose their permission level and save.

When i then open Sharing properties again - these added users disappear visually.

People can actually open this shared folder from their computers, so it works. But if i want to share the folder to other users - i have to add them AND old users. otherwise they will lose their permissions.

How are you sharing the folders?

Between users on a single PC or across a network with multiple pcs and users?

Does the host computer have a static IP address or are you using full path names to identify the host computer and directory/network path.

Sketch out a simple diagram of the required folder sharing. Pay attention to the folder hierarchies.

Group Policy may also be involved.

Then use the following link (and you can easily find similar links) to set up the sharing.
