When connecting to my Windows Server 2003 from my Windows 7 machine (we are on the same domain), I cannot see any files or resources on the machine and I am told it is not accessible. Using a Windows XP machine with the same username and password, I can access it. What could be preventing me from seeing my files?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

if lets say you are using this method which is \\SERVER IP\C/D$(depends on the drive) are you able to use your id and password to login? if yes, can you head to the place and are you able to see the files?

can you also make sure that the windows services for computer browser is started and automatic?

Verify if the system actually connect to the domain by pinging the server…make sure u map the drive containing the file if and only if u are using map drive…and if problem persist, it means the system is infected by various, which means u have to reformat..re-join the the domain
