    I have an external hard drive that I run as a network drive. In my Network and Sharing Center I have Password Protected Sharing set to Off, but when I try and access the drive from another computer XP or Vista it asks for a password. Is it because I have a password for my user account? I also enabled the Administrator account and put a password on that too. So is it because the computer users have passwords or something else?
