If you are trying to share a folder but you get the error:
An error occurred while trying to share FOLDERNAME. The server service is not started. The shared resource was not created at this time.
Here are some things to check:
- Under Network Connections, check to ensure File and Printer Sharing is checked under the Properties of the connection.
- Go to Start > Run type net start server and press Enter.
Try to share the folder out again. Hopefully this works for you.
