Folder sharing help, Vista shares the whole hierarchy, not just the one folder

    Hi,



    I have two PCs, one with Vista, one with XP on it. They are networked via a router and they are both on the same workgroup. It's easiest if I show the problem I'm having with an example.



    Save you have the following folders:



    C:\A\B\C\D



    If I share the "D" folder, Vista seems to insist on sharing A, B & C as well. When I go to my XP machine, I see:



    \\<COMPUTERNAME>\A\B\C\D



    When I used to have two XP machines and did the above, I'd see this:



    \\<COMPUTERNAME>\D



    How can I get this behaviour in Vista?



    Any help would be really appreciated!



    Kind regards,

    Yabbie
