      Do you have the correct permissions to access the folder??

      Check both NTFS permissions and share permissions.

        You need to check if the File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks service is enable under Local Area Connection Properties in computer xxxx.
        If it is check, then you need to take Ownership of the folders and files that you need to access on computer xxxx.
        You need Administrator privilege to do it.
