Sharing grayed out



Private network. In network and sharing center I have network discovery, file
sharing, print sharing, public sharing and printer sharing all turned on.
When I try to share a disk the sharing option is grayed out same with the
printer. What am I overlooking?

For security reason sharing of whole Drive is blocked.
You can share public folders, or create new folders, and establish for them
your own rules.
