I cannot copy files from my MacBook to my iMac and visa versa using file sharing via the Finder. The issue is with the MacBook as I can copy files from my iMac to my wife's iMac, no problem.

It seems like I need to "reset" file sharing. How do I do that?

When I copy to or from the MacBook, I get a message that says the file already exists in the location I am trying to copy it to (it doesn't - verified). It then creates a file on the MacBook (if I am copying from the iMac) that is 0KB. File name is there but won't open.

As I look, I maybe should have put this in the OS X forum. How do I change that? Don't want to have duplicate posts.
