I have this issue that is making me go crazy,
I have a windows server 2008 R2 file server, it is also running the FS resource manager. I had to move the shares form an old 2003 server over to this new file server due to the old server had a hardware crash and I lost it. I copied over the dead drive data using a drive copy to new hardware (copy and paste to a new storage device). I then setup the shares so that the users can get to them. All employees are on windows 7 with the latest Service packs installed, in addition all employees have local administrator privs. I have setup my share access by department security groups (IE finance, Customer Service..Etc..etc..) each group has Modify control. However when I look at the top level folder permissions it say read only.( Is this by design in svr08 r2)
And the share perms and they all have change and read except for Symantec, it has full control
and now the security tab perms
are all set to modify control for all groups.
Owner is set to Administrator, not administrators(local)
I have disabled Symantec antivirus, it is run level 12.1.1101.401 Release) RU1 MP1
I did notice under the properties for the share under>sharing tab>share.. the finance and other security groups were set to contributor, i reset them to read/write. Was that possibly the issue??
I have read a previous thread/post about disabling the UAC, i did this but have yet to reboot. Id prefer to keep it active for reasons known.
So everyday, i get a call from someone in finance saying they cant update the excel or word document in their respective finance share, and i have to go in and remove the finance security group and re-add it, and then it works, or add each person individually and it works for a day, the it reverts back to read only.???????????
thanks for your time and assitiance.

Since you moved the shared from old server(2003) to new file server(2008 R2), you have to set the permissions again.
Please check the permissions once again and set it properly.Also instead of share permissions( after setting default share permissions) you have to work with NTFS permissions.
Here is a link for your reference to set NTFS permissions, refer http://support.microsoft.com/kb/277867?wa=wsignin1.0.
Also we have a dedicated forum for the queries related to file server, make use of this forum, where experts responds to your query soon.
Thank you for understanding.
