Please check the permissions on the directories that were not copied

They all have permission for full edit. I did that along with the sharing of 20 folders.

I really have no further idea here. If you can see the files across the network, and you can copy some of them, and you have full permissions on all the files, then I have no more suggestions!

I would normally suggest that you check the permissions on the share itself, as well as on the files, but I think if this were wrong then you wouldn't be able to copy any of the files. I guess it's worth a check though. It can't do any harm to check.

Look at the properties of the shared folder. Select the Sharing tab, click on Advanced Sharing..., click on Permissions, grant Full Control access to Everyone.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Yes that is what I did for all the folders.

Are any of these files in the User Account's "Documents" folder?

If so, that just may be the issue.

In a word, none. They are in a sub sub sub folder in program files (x86).

The program files (x86) folder is not a normal folder. I am pretty sure that this would all work if you were accessing files on a normal drive, not C:

Here's something you could try, I have NOT tested this, so I don't guarantee that it will work. Have a look at this article, follow the instructions to set the value of registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\LocalAccountTokenFilterPolicy
to 1, and see if doing this on the computer where the files are enables you to access the files.

AFTER you have set that policy, you could also try connecting to the C$ administrative share and see if that lets you get to the files you want.

There really are NOT any files that are in the Program folder that can be or should be shared.

What file(s) are you trying to access that are in the Program folder and their full path?
