I have a PC running 19.04 & a Netbook running 16.04, both on my local WiFi network.
I am admin on both.
I have File/Folder Sharing working OK between my own files, both ways, on these 2 machines.

But I can't make my wife's Files/Folders shareable on either machine.
If I try from her desk, I get an error message:

'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: failed to add share desktop. Error was Operation not permitted
Other methods, like accessing her files via file manager from my own desk & trying to make them shareable from there, or "Opening file manager as Admin" from either desk also failed for various reasons (which I could detail if of any interest).

Should it be possible to share non-admin-user's files?
If so - how?

Thanks for any help!
