Make sure desktop2 has shared folder (or shared drive). Make sure share
permissions (not file permissions but share permissions) are set so everyone
has full control. Then make sure desktop2 file permisions allow for users
from desktop1 to connect (put exact same username and password accounts on
desktop1 and desktop2).
