permission and control over another computer's files

by canichols2 / November 29, 2009 1:59 PM PST

I have a laptop and a desktop, both windows 7RC. I have an external hard drive and my main hard drive attatched to my desktop but my laptop is my main computer, the desktop basically just sits in the corner pluged in. I don't even turn the monitor on. When I need to use it for something I just remote on from my laptop. lol.

I was wondering how i could set up the drives on my desktop so my laptop user have full controll over them. Right now i'm able to access them, open files and folders, run programs, and everything. But I am not able to move, add, copy, delete or do anything with those files, just access them.

If anybody has any usefull ideas or a way to get this to work, I'd be verry apreciative.
