hi, first i am new to mac. i am trying to share files on my external hard drive, which is connecting to my mac, with my pc's. here is what i did:
1. go to system preference->sharing
2. click file sharing, now the status of file sharing is "on"
however, i can not see any folders under "Shared Folders" (even the public folder),,, what's more, i can not add any folder into the "Shared Folder" box.
if i click "+" under the "Shared Folder" box, and select some folder, the folder i selected will not shown in the "Shared Folder" box, and my mac will halt: i can not start any application, and even i can not force quit the "system preference". what i can do is to turn off mac by press the power button,,,,,
does anyone have the same experience?
thanks in advance!!!
